High pressure will slide eastward into the Atlantic this afternoon as low pressure moving out of the Ohio River valley and an associated warm front bring clouds and widespread snow to the region tonight through Monday. The Monday morning commute is expected to be significantly impacted by snow accumulations of 2″ to 5″ with snow showers continuing into Monday afternoon. The rest of the week will see on and off chances for snow showers and a cooling trend.
