FORECAST IN DETAIL
It has been a while since we saw a considerable blizzard in the middle of winter. We actually have to return to the Blizzard of 2016. While not in any way in competition with this, it is the best time to use the cold air and, if you like snow, to maximize enjoyment. It stays calm all morning today, but snow should fill the air increasingly as we turn towards the sunset.

Today (Saturday): It's a mostly cloudy start, but maybe just enough to let in the light. (I'll check the comments to see what the sunrise was like.) Clouds are thickening in the morning, and snow can blow out in the air. The air is dry, so it will take a while for it to become saturated. In the west and southwest of the area, however, the flakes reach the ground in the early afternoon and then spread out to the east. At sundown, most or all of the area should see snow, in places to the south and west about a centimeter on the ground, and more like dusting half an inch or more. High temperatures in the low to mid-30s fall below freezing when the snow starts. Trust : Medium
Tonight: We will continue to see snow in the evening, and it should generally be more intense into the night. At times it can also be easier, but it seems as if the strongest snow of the storm could come at night. A few inches will probably accumulate through the night and untreated roads become snow-covered and smooth. The temperatures are mostly in the middle to upper range of the 20s. Winds are light.

Morning (Sunday): Shovels and plows seem busy in the morning. The accumulation of snow could last for a while, with volumes in the Greater Region settling between three and six inches – further south and less north. The storm should subside if we do not come to lunch before noon, but it could be a slow process to shut down completely. Even if the accumulation stops, some snow should stay in the air in the afternoon. The highs are near or below freezing in most places, with a range of about 30 to the mid-30s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Winds are gustier and a few snowflakes may linger into the evening. Otherwise, it calms down when the storm subsides. The lows range from the upper teens in the north and west to the middle or upper 20s in the city and the southeast. Trust: Medium
A LOOK BEFORE
By Monday Monday the storm has disappeared from here. However, some upper-level disturbances remain, which may mean some snow showers and the sky is probably cloudy. We'll get warm enough to melt something, with the highs heading for 40 or so. Trust: Medium
It is again pleasant weather for Tuesday . Sunny skies and calm wind combine with temperatures that rise in the middle of the 40s. Confidence: Medium
