Some light snow showers or flurries will fall from the skies this morning over the Capital Region. This was thanks to a weak, and relatively moisture deprived upper level disturbance passing by to the north of the region. High pressure will slowly build into the region this afternoon as the disturbance accelerates eastward and away from the area.
Clear and cold conditions are expected tonight as the high pressure system settles overhead, with a cold day expected Thursday. As the high pressure area moves east of the region by Friday, temperatures will be allowed to slowly climb back to near seasonable levels.
Another cold front looks to approach the region Saturday, bringing another chance for light precipitation. This system stalls to the south of the region to start the new work week, with precipitation production confined to our south.
