By the end of the week, we will be tracking two more systems and another blast of very cold arctic air.
The first system arrives on Friday and could start as light snow and a wintry mix, particularly west, in the morning and transition to all rain for most.
Any snow accumulation at this time looks to be minor.
Behind this storm, temperatures will once again plummet.
By Saturday afternoon, temperatures will top out in the 30s and skies should be mostly sunny throughout the day.
The next day to watch is Super Bowl Sunday.
The Eyewitness News weather team will be watching a very similar pattern unfold, where a coastal storm will develop and intensify as it moves across the Atlantic.
Models are hinting at a robust storm that could impact the region on Sunday with the potential for measurable snow.
Behind this storm temperatures will struggle to get out of the 20s early next week.
