It's currently 4 degrees above freezing right now, and even though the sky is covered in clouds, the sun is doing its best to soften up all that snow. You shouldn't have to deal with too many icy patches today, but be prepared for things to freeze up after the sun goes down, although it shouldn't get much colder than a few degrees below freezing overnight. The weather has been mild and spring like since the snow we saw on Friday, but all this is supposedly just the calm before the storm as a winter-like air mass is scheduled to move into the area tomorrow night, bringing with it heavy snow and possibly even blizzard like conditions. This could be the last big snow-event of the season, so hopefully we'll see a lot more snow to bulk up the 200cm that we managed to accumulate over the winter.

For those out enjoying the spring-like conditions today, the mild temperatures may tempt you to dress a little lighter, but the wind has been whipping around a bit, so be sure to dress somewhat warmly!
