As patchy clouds move into the area from the northwest we'll just see partly cloudy skies Saturday night.  Low temperatures will drop into the upper 20s. 

As we start Sunday we'll still see partly cloudy skies, so expect some sun but more clouds will move in later in the day.  High temperatures will continue to be well above average in the mid 40s.  Winds out of the west-northwest will be breezy through the day at 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

As we head into Sunday evening, a clipper system well to our north will start to affect us as it nears the Great Lakes.  We'll be on the southwest edge of it and will have a chance for some flurries.  That chance will last into the overnight hours.  

By Monday morning, we're likely to see some scattered snow showers which could cause some issues during the morning commute.  The chance for scattered snow showers will last through the day and accumulations will be around an inch.  Even though we're not expecting a whole lot of snow, it could still be enough to slow up traffic.  Expect high winds too, as high as 35 mph with gusts up to 45 and 50 mph.  High temperatures Monday will be much colder and only reach the upper 20s.  Combine that with the winds and feels like temperatures will likely be in the teens.  Any remaining snow showers left during Monday evening will exit the region before we head into the overnight hours.
