The snow continues into Monday morning, before becoming more scattered throughout the day.

In the early afternoon, the cold front crosses the Triangle and triggers a temperature crash. Luckily that is in the forecast.

High pressure moves in from the west Sunday and builds right atop the region.

27 Storm Track meteorologist Guy Brown predicts the area will get from around an inch or less up to 2 inches southwest of Madison.

Highs today expected to be just like yesterday in the 40s with some areas being a few degrees warmer.

Winds will be out of the north at 5-15 miles per hour under mostly sunny skies. Lows will be near freezing for many of us, with some of our northern counties dropping below 30 with all of the radiational cooling taking place.

The average low this time of year hovers in the mid-30s, where Lincoln has seen high temperatures of late. Warmer air will push in Monday with a southwest wind flow.

The home openers for the Andover Central High School softball and baseball teams was canceled Friday, delaying the Jaguars' first opportunity to play on new turf. Unfortunately, all that sun won't be warming us up too much. Tonight a weak system will bring in snow showers to the area.

Thursday should be dry again with some sunshine. Still behind the seasonable high of 51°. However, the system is likely to return this afternoon bringing a chance of more snow and heavier winds.

Any leftover snow by early Monday morning will transition to a light rain and snow mix. Accumulation is looking light. Highs will be around 40. Temperatures will bottom out in the low to mid 20s.

Enjoy the start of your week! It may be pretty nice for a few days after that as well.
