High pressure will build in to the region today with plenty of sunshine, but remaining cold. As the high slides offshore tonight, a warm front will begin to approach into Monday with a period of light snow transitioning to a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain from Monday afternoon into early Tuesday morning. Warmer air will then arrive into mid-week ahead of a strong cold front with near record high temperatures possible.
