A clipper system and associated arctic frontal boundary will exit the region this morning as high pressure builds in for tonight into Monday. A complex storm system will then approach by late Monday into Tuesday with snow changing to a wintry mix, and some significant snow accumulations possible for most of the region. Winter storm watches may be issued by the National Weather Service later today to cover this threat.
