Saturday evening forecast: Some snow could be on the way

The rest of your Saturday will be chilly and may include a sprinkle or two. The rest of your Saturday will be chilly and may include a sprinkle or two.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with patchy drizzle for some. Low: 33°

Sunday: Variably cloudy with random light sprinkles possible (20% coverage). High: 48°.

Monday: Clouds linger with a light rain/snow mix possible through the afternoon (40% coverage). High: 39°.

As expected, we saw limited amounts of sunshine on Saturday, and Sunday looks very similar.

The clouds will be stubborn and a few areas see a few random light sprinkles through the day Sunday. Highs will be just a touch warmer, with most in the mid-upper 40s.

Clouds will linger Sunday night into Monday, as we await the next storm system. The timing of the next system is consistent among the forecast models, but the placement of the storm varies greatly.

Each model-run continues to be stubborn and keep the same placement and track of the storm. This is problematic because they are so far apart that our forecast could vary greatly depending on which of the half-dozen models are correct.

As of Saturday evening, we are likely to see a light rain/snow mix develop through the day Monday and, from evening on, we could see it change over to a mainly-snow event into Tuesday, with some accumulations.

The more likely areas for accumulation might tend to be across the central and southern valley into north Georgia. With the forecast models so far apart, confidence in this type of event is low to moderate.

We will continue to monitor the next several model outputs and see if some consistency arrives. So stay with the 6 Storm Team for further updates.
