Old Man Winter is in no hurry to head for the hills.
Just days away from the start of spring on Saturday, March 20, a bitter blast of Arctic air is lingering over the region, bringing temperatures well below normal coupled with strong wind gusts making it feel even cold.
That will be followed by a storm system that will bring some snowfall.
Monday, March 15 will be sunny and blustery with a high temperature in the low 30s, gusts up to 25 miles per hour, and wind-chill values in the teens.
Clouds will increase Monday night. The overnight low will be in the mid 20s with wind-chill values in the teens.
Tuesday, March 16 will be partly sunny with a high temperature in the upper 30s and wind-chill temps between 10 and 20 degrees.
Clouds will increase after nightfall as the storm system nears. That will be followed by light snow and snow showers overnight, followed by a mix of rain and snow through the morning commute on St. Patrick's Day, Wednesday, March 17.
Untreated surfaces will be slippery, but snowfall accumulation will be limited to a coating to an inch.
Wednesday's high temperature will climb into the mid 40s with cloudy skies and a chance for afternoon showers.
