Scattered snow showers today will be the result of residual moisture wrapping around the low that gave us snow and rain yesterday, and lake effect snow off the Great Lakes. A light dusting of snow is possible before winding down this evening.

Sunday should be partly cloudy with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.

A wind advisory is in effect through this evening.

I'll have a full update Sunday evening.
