Another complex storm system will bring mainly rain to the area Saturday evening through Sunday morning; higher elevations may see minor ice accumulations. Rain may be heavy at times and localized flooding will be a concern. A bitterly cold Arctic airmass will drop temperatures from the 40s and 50s Sunday morning to the 20s and 30s by sunset. Due to the abrupt temperature drop icy roads are a concern Sunday evening through Monday morning. Temperatures Monday will only manage the upper 20s to near 30 and wind chills will approach zero degrees at times, making for the coldest temperatures thus far this season. Warmer air moves in for Tuesday and Wednesday sending afternoon highs back to the 40s and 50s.
