Winter Storm... Round 2

Saturday looks dry as the front sags south allowing colder air to move into the region.  The front starts heading north Saturday night-Sunday.  Freezing rain and or snow is likely... Possible 1/4 to 1/2" (if we end up with more snow the ice totals will be less).  This part of the forecast is still developing.  Bottom line... Driving conditions will be dangerous and locally power outages may be possible.  The freezing rain may change over to rain during the day on Sunday.  

Very COLD air moves into the region next week with highs in the 20s and lows in the Teens!…  Stay tuned for updates.
