A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Weekend Snow (Jan. 18-19)

Old Man Winter's January vacation looks like it's about to come to an end. We've had a few days in a row of light dustings, and Saturday looks to bring even more light snow to the area.

We should see 1 or 2" on the ground by the end of the night tomorrow. The snow will start after noon and will be very light. Because temps will be close to freezing, the snow will be more dense and of the wet variety.

After the brief snow on Saturday, we'll start to see the temps plummet in a manner that will remind you of the Jan. 2nd and 3rd freeze. It won't get that low because we don't have much of a snow pack in place, but we'll see highs in the low to mid teens for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Get out the face protection!

As for bona fide snow storms, we don't have much to be optimistic about. This cold wave will keep things dry. We might see a disturbance affect our region at the end of next week as the temperature starts to moderate but that's the best we can offer you at this point.

Enjoy the light snow tomorrow. We'll have more about the cold and potential storms at the end of the long weekend.
