Snow is the forecast to wrap up this holiday weekend according to the National Weather Service, with showers expected on Sunday and Monday to accompany lower temperatures.

Saturday looks to be cloudy with a 20 percent chance of rain and the probability moving up to 70 percent that night with 10 to 15 mile-per-hour winds and gusts up to 25 miles-per-hour. Saturdays high is expected to reach 66 degrees and the overnight low around 45 degrees.

Showers are again likely on Sunday with cloudy skies and a temperature drop to a high of 49 degrees. The chances of precipitation are 60 percent and an overnight low of 36 degrees brings a chance of snow into the mix Sunday night.

Temperatures are expected to stay low to begin the week with a high on Monday near 44 degrees and an overnight low of 33 degrees. Rain and snow showers are again possible Monday and Monday night with chances of precipitation at 50 percent during the day and 30 percent overnight.

Although the forecast calls for snow, meteorologists with the National Weather Service indicated no snow accumulation was expected going into the weekend, but with a cold front coming in Saturday night, the chances of accumulation may increase.
