Wintry Weather Expected to Hit Saturday

We may have to break out those snow shovels at last.

The National Weather Service (NWS) is calling for wintry weather this Saturday. According to the NWS the precipitation may start early in the evening, just after 4 p.m. with a 30 percent chance of snow with less than half an inch of accumulation.

Most of the wintry weather will happen Saturday night, with snow and sleet expected around midnight. Two to four inches of snow is possible, the NWS says. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent. The temperature overnight Saturday is expected to be around 27 degrees.

Cleanup may not be too bad however, as Sunday is expected to be warmer. According to the NWS we can expect rain and a high near 48 degrees. It may be ugly but it will also get rid of some the accumulated snowfall.
