.DISCUSSION...
A weak system is bringing scattered light snow showers to the region
this morning with isolated showers continuing through tonight. Cool
and dry conditions to follow for midweek with temperatures gradually
warming toward the end of the week. Weak inversions are likely to
develop the middle into the end of the week, reducing mixing
heights. Chances for precipitation and gusty winds increase next
weekend as a system moves into the northwest.
