Warm air will once again be a factor in where the changeover lines fall, and meteorologists will hone in on projected snow amounts through the day as the models update and hopefully come to a better consensus.

Scattered snow showers and flurries will linger Tuesday afternoon and early evening, then dry weather takes hold overnight and through Wednesday.

The weekend will be chilly but dry and then — finally — some milder weather arrives Monday with highs ready to crack 40 degrees for the first time in a while.
