...Next Batch of Precipitation Arrives Tonight...

.DISCUSSION...Seasonably cool conditions stick around today, with
our next weaker storm system dropping in from the north tonight.
That feature will bring with it a period of mainly light snowfall
for many areas near and east of the Mississippi River, though some
light freezing rain could also mix in at times, especially by
Monday morning. Overall, snowfall amounts look to be around an
inch for many areas, though a few localized heavier amounts are
possible. Beyond Monday, Tuesday looks quite breezy and downright
cold, before temperatures slowly rebound toward the weekend.
