A series of upper level weather systems will bring a chance of showers across the region this weekend and early next week. Arctic air is likely to arrive early next week, which will push snow levels down into the foothills, possibly even into the higher elevations of the Valley. Forecast confidence is low however on how much and how strong the showers will be.
Travel delays, slick roads, and chain controls possible over the mountains
