Melting snow will continue as we head into the weekend. Temperatures look to climb into the 40s both Saturday and Sunday. The next area of low pressure looks to arrive on Saturday, bringing the surge of warmer temperatures. It won't start out warm, with snow early in the day, changing to rain. A generally dreary, cloudy, breezy afternoon, with highs in the 40s. Here's a look at snow accumulation expected before the changeover to rain:

Temperatures remain near or above freezing overnight. The next storm system approaches from the northwest on Sunday. This is expected to bring rain showers to the region late in the day. High temperatures look to be slightly cooler, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.

The snow will continue to melt throughout the weekend. The quality of snow is expected to diminish, too, as the snow becomes wet and slushy. Snow melt will continue on Monday, with highs in the upper 30s. A strong cold front arrives Monday night, bringing a brief push of arctic air to the region Monday night and early Tuesday. This will turn the snow/slush to ice. Temperatures look to climb near or above freezing again as we head into the middle of next week. Spring is slowly on the way!
