Saturday looks dry but cold. We'll see some sun peak through at times, with highs in the lower 30s.
...SYSTEM TWO MOVES IN: Arctic air hangs around through Sunday morning, setting us up for another round of wintry precipitation. A mix of sleet and freezing rain is expected at the onset of this event before switching over to plain rain by late Sunday morning. Significant ice accumulations of up to .25" are possible Sunday morning before the change to rain. The precip could switch back to a mixed bag Sunday night into Monday before ending.
