Saturday: Another system will bring moisture up from the south for the start of the weekend, and the exact path could impact the rain/snow chance. For now, it looks like scattered showers will move in late morning and through the day. It will be breezy with temperatures in the low 40s.

North and west Miami Valley will change over to some snow for the evening, but everyone could see some light flurries at night before ending. Accumulation for the northwest will be light and likely on the grass. Some slick spots are possible as temperatures fall back below freezing overnight.

Sunday: It will be a chilly morning in the upper 20s, and dry with partly cloudy skies through the day.

Monday: Partly cloudy skies are expected during the day, which will be slightly warmer with temperatures in the low 50s.

Tuesday: It will be a dry start to the day, but showers will move in for the afternoon and it will be milder with highs in the mid-50s. It will also become windy throughout the day as another storm system approaches.
