It was a cold and sporadically snowy weekend for much of the Northeast. While a short warmup is waiting on the horizon, the winter weather will be back later in the week for this part of the country.

Here is what you need to know about the topsy turvy forecast.

Weekend Closes Out with Chilly Temperatures and Sporadic Snow for the Northeast

The weekend was chilly and wet in spots for the Northeast. Forecasters are offering a bit of hope with a warming trend on tap to start the new work week.

However, a brand new storm system is set to take aim at the region by the middle of the week, ushering in new chances of wintry precipitation. This weather maker is expected to lean on the cold air to the north to generate chances of measurable snow in portions of the Northeast.

The early weekend storm brought several inches of new snow to some areas of the Appalachians and the mid-Atlantic. This snow stuck around through Saturday, creating slippery roads into the Northeast.

A secondary clipper storm swept through the region with light snowfall on Sunday. The heaviest snow will remain in Canada with this particular clipper, keeping impacts to a minimum as the weekend came to a close.

Despite the chill in the air, the wintry precipitation associated with this clipper has been welcomed across the ski resorts of New England during this President's Day holiday weekend.

Temperatures have been trending a few degrees below the historical average for the middle of February for this part of the country with highs struggling to climb past the low 20s in New England and remaining in the upper 40s in the areas surrounding the Chesapeake Bay.

Monday morning commuters will want to be aware of the potential of icy spots on the roads as melting snow may freeze overnight Sunday.

Temperatures across the northern fringe of New England will fall to near zero on Sunday night and into Monday. Meanwhile, lows will drop all the way into the 20s in cities as far south as Washington, D.C.
