We will have a cold end to February, with overnight low temperatures around 11 degrees, and Friday high temperatures only in the upper 30s. Light rain mixed with snow is possible Friday night, with more wintry precipitation possible Sunday into Monday. There is concern for potential icy problems Monday, with freezing rain, sleet, and snow possible during the day.

Cloudy skies will return Saturday night, with rain developing Saturday night into Sunday. Sunday looks to feature rain, with freezing rain possible late in the day, and an afternoon high of 36 degrees.
