      We felt the warmth today- we were above freezing for the first time in a week, which was just before a winter storm moved through, though we mainly got rain and a wintry mix before light snow fell. We're in a similar weather pattern this week, and we will see a couple more days with warmer air. In fact, tomorrow will make a run at 40 degrees before more clouds build in for Saturday and Sunday as a strong low pressure system approaches. Still looks above freezing for highs both Saturday and Sunday, with precipitation expected to start Sunday. This low currently sits just off the California coast and will travel nearly 2,000 miles before impacting us. Sunday looks to have light precipitation, mainly a mix of drizzle and flurries early, though a band of moderate snow will be possible further north. A decent amount of the day may end up dry before the bulk of the precip moves in by evening. Depending on the track of this system which is uncertain due to inability to properly measure it's strength and size now along with error in how it could evolve over the next several days, we could see rain, snow or a wintry mix Sunday night into Monday, with it changing to all snow sometime between Sunday night and late morning Monday. Certainly something we're going to keep an eye on, but what we do know now is some winter weather will impact us, just questions about type and how long each type of precip persists for. Expect slippery roads and for travel to at least be difficult Monday, though there's a chance that travel will be dangerous both Sunday and Monday, with impacts lasting into Tuesday as this system moves out. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
