High pressure will return to the region today with drier weather and seasonable temperatures continuing through Tuesday. Yet another storm system looks to approach the region by mid-week with a round of significant mixed precipitation possible and heavy snow across the higher terrain. A slow moving upper level low will then linger behind the storm through the end of the workweek with unsettled weather continuing.
