It’ll be mild over the weekend with highs in the 30s and another chance of snow showers Saturday with a coating of accumulation for many.

The bigger focus next week is a large storm system developing Monday night into the middle of next week with the potential for significant snowfall accumulations and perhaps even rain. It will likely be a slow-moving system as well.
