High pressure will slide offshore into this afternoon as a clipper system and associated cold front approaches with some scattered snow showers. Yet another clipper system will pass south of the region on Saturday with high pressure returning into the second half of the weekend. A much larger storm system then looks to approach by Tuesday with a mix of rain and snow.
