Rain and snow are expected to make a comeback this weekend, followed by sunny skies and cold temperatures in the coming week.

From today’s expected high of 40, temperatures will drop into the 30s Sunday, then fall further during the week, with highs in the 20s and lows approaching 10.

A weak storm moved into the region Friday, bringing with it a chance of precipitation over the weekend.

Snow and patchy fog are likely before 10 a.m. today, followed by rain throughout the day.

Rain and snow are likely after 10 p.m. An accumulation of 1 to 3 inches of snow is possible tonight and the low will be around 32.

Snow is likely Sunday and another 1 to 3 inches of accumulation is possible. A northeast wind of 15 to 17 mph is expected, but gusts could reach 25 mph.

The rest of the week is expected to be cool, dry and mostly sunny.

“We have arctic air moving in from the north and the east,” said meteorologist John Livingston. “It’s going to get cold.”
