Winter worked back into the picture behind low pressure over the Great Lakes and Northeastern states.

Rain changed over to wet snow, which will fall through the overnight hours, before tapering off to light snow showers after midnight. Accumulations will be up to an inch, especially on elevated surfaces, while roads remain mainly wet, though slippery spots will develop later as the temperature dips to freezing tonight.

Gray and seasonably cold weather will linger on Sunday with some flurries and a cold westerly breeze. Clouds may thin out a little later, but mainly overcast skies will persist Sunday night into Monday as an upper-air impulse passes a little south of Ohio.

The week ahead will be chilly and mostly cloudy, with a possible period of light snow early Wednesday associated with the next upper-air disturbance. A stronger surge of cold air will arrive next weekend in time for the start of February.

Tonight: Snow tapers to flurries (grassy coating). Low 32

Sunday: Brisk, cold, few flurries. High 36

Monday: Cloudy, cold. High 37 (30)

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, cold. High 38 (30)

Wednesday: Snow showers early, chilly. High 36 (30)

Thursday: Partly sunny. High 39 (28)

Friday: Mostly cloudy. showers later. High 42 (32)
