A clipper system will pass just south of the region today, brushing some locations with a few flurries or snow showers this afternoon. High pressure will then build in for the second half of the weekend with chilly temperatures and breezy conditions continuing. A much larger storm system then looks to approach by late Monday into Tuesday with a mix of rain and snow, and some snow accumulations possible for most of the region.
