No significant accumulations of snow are expected, although a light dusting could occur on a few elevated surfaces. Drier and brighter weather will arrive from late Wednesday through Saturday, but temperatures will only peak in the 40s each day. The next storm system will bring widespread rain to the area on Sunday into Monday.
Today: It will be much colder, with temperatures peaking only in the lower 40s today under thick clouds.
