Technical Discussion:

High pressure overhead is moving eastward as a warm front approaches the area on Monday. Models in pretty good agreement with light snow and sleet breaking out between late morning and early afternoon. Could even see some flurries break out by mid-morning based on radar trends. Warmer air moves in aloft, but interior areas may stay below freezing into the second half of the day. As a result, expecting a period of icing. Any initial snow and sleet should accumulate to less than one inch, but the afternoon/evening commute looks slick.
Milder air overspreads the area on Tuesday, but cloudiness and low level moisture may keep temperatures down along with areas of drizzle.
Wednesday finally breaks out and even though clouds linger, temperatures should reach the mid-50's. Any breaks of sun and readings could go even higher. As a cold front approaches at night, temperatures hold steady in the low to mid-50's as a period of rain rolls in. Sharp cold advection and gusty winds expected for Thursday should result in steady or slowly falling temperatures throughout the day.
The forecast for Friday remains mostly cloudy, but an offshore system is being watched as it could potentially affect the area. 

Today: Sunshine and not as cold. Highs in the upper 20's inland, lower 30's shore.
Tonight: Increasing clouds. Lows in the teens to around 20.
Monday: Light snow/sleet changing to freezing drizzle. Highs in the low to mid-30's.
---Snow accumulation: up to an inch. Up to a quarter inch of ice possible.
Monday night: Areas of freezing drizzle inland, drizzle shore. Lows 28 to 34.
Tuesday: Milder with patchy drizzle and sprinkles. Highs mid-40's.
Wednesday: Clouds, very mild, rain at night. Highs in the mid-50's.
Thursday: Clearing, windy and turning cooler. Temperatures steady/falling into the 40's.
Friday: Mostly cloudy. Highs in the low to mid-30's.

Note: Inland temperatures are an average. Often times, outlying areas may be a few degrees cooler than the advertised temperature on the 6-day graphic.
