Accumulating snow is expected through the end of the weekend, with decreasing snowfall rates on Sunday afternoon as the weather system pulls to the east. Strong winds and a wintry mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain are possible through the morning, transitioning into all snow later in the day. While a shower can't be ruled out, most of the day should be dry with a mix of clouds and sunshine.

Temperatures climb into the upper 70s and lower 80s with a gusty south-southwest breeze. Sunday night will be clear and chilly with lows in the lower 40s and possibly some upper 30s.

Conditions are forecast to turn milder again during the upcoming week. An isolated thunderstorm is not out of the question.

Sunday night's rain will continue into Monday when the winds will be southeast at 24 miles per hour though the highs will be warmer - about 56 - and the lows about 40.
