CloudyClear those driveways because more snow moves into the forecast this week.

Today will be cloudy, with a chance of a wintry mix tonight. The high temperature will creep above freezing toward 38.

Tomorrow, a slight chance of snow enters the forecast, but chances improve as we move toward Wednesday. There’s a 50 percent chance of snow mid-week, when temperatures will drop once again well below freezing.
