The sun will be out Saturday morning and temperatures will be in the lower 40s.

Tonight: A 20 percent chance of snow after 1 a.m. Peak wind gusts were 32 miles per hour but the wind is expected to taper off overnight.

Some light rain and flurries will arrive late Sunday night, mainly after 10 PM.

In any event, it appears that the endless March will persist into the second week of April, with another coastal-storm threat looming for early in the workweek. As the high gradually slides east, winds will come back out of the south and highs will finally get back to normal and even above normal. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. Near 1 inch of snow is again likely in the metro area with higher totals in Western Iowa and lower totals in Eastern Nebraska. Similar to Friday, pockets of snow could provide some slick spots on the roadways and drop down visibility at times, but that would be about it. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. Monday night into Tuesday, the aforementioned low pressure system moving in from the Midwest will try and phase with an area of low pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast that will track northeastward.

North Korea expresses interest in Tokyo, Beijing Olympics
The IOC said Bach's trip would last until March 31, and came on the heels of an invitation extended by Pyongyang in January. A North Korean team has participated at every addition of the Summer Olympics since they boycotted Seoul 1988.

FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. High: 60.

Monday: Mostly sunny with a high near 69. Be careful on the roads, as paved surfaces quickly froze, then became snow covered last night as the arctic front moved through. Lows will be near freezing for many of us, with some of our northern counties dropping below 30 with all of the radiational cooling taking place.

If you're hoping for that day when you look outside and see all the flowers blossoming, "that's not showing up yet", he said.
