Forecast: Saturday The Winner For The Weekend

This morning you'll notice there are some icy spots from yesterday's snow and rain. This issue shouldn't last long and many areas that needed to be treated have been.

Gray skies will dominate today as more precipitation moves through. Temperatures are going to be quite chilly, so when the precipitation begins there could be a bit of sleet or snow. There won't be any accumulation, but roads will remain wet this afternoon and into the evening commute.

The rain will taper off and end overnight and that will set us up for the best day of the weekend — Saturday.

Tomorrow brings a blend of clouds and sunshine with mild temperatures. Highs will reach the lower to mid-50s across the area.

Another area of rain moves in Saturday night into Sunday. Again, there could be a little bit of frozen precipitation at the start of this event, mainly north and west of Route 2 and I-495. The rain will continue most of Sunday morning before tapering off in the afternoon.

Early next week is looking drier and we'll see some temperatures above average. There may be another rain system later next week as we continue in a active pattern.
