.DISCUSSION...
Warm and dry weather will continue through the weekend, but
a storm system will bring widespread showers and even some
thunderstorms on Monday. Tuesday through Thursday will be
warm and dry as well, but a stronger, more powerful winter
storm appears to be headed this way on Friday with heavy
snow and strong wind possible. It is too early to tell where
exactly the storm will track and how much snow will fall.
