The final wave of low-pressure along a pesky frontal boundary will exit tonight. A lingering snow flurry is not out of the question as colder air filters into the High Country.
After the precipitation, a high pressure moves in over the Great Lakes bringing cool temperatures and breezy winds tonight and early tomorrow. With the high pressure, skies clear and stay clear through Saturday. The high pressure moves off the east coast Sunday, bringing warmer temperatures, and a tad more moisture, enough for clouds.
A weaker high pressure develops over the Southeast, and sticks around through Tuesday, clearing skies once again. The next chance of rain comes late Wednesday.
