Southerly winds on the back side of high pressure over Virginia will help temperatures return to near 40 degrees on Saturday.

A few snow showers have broken out early Saturday morning as the warmer air starts to push north. These flurries should not amount to much before they push off to the northeast.

Clouds should transition to some sunshine by the afternoon. With the southerly winds also in place, many areas will flirt with 40 degrees this afternoon.

Temperatures will back into the upper 20s tonight with a mix of clouds and stars. No precipitation is expected overnight or into Sunday.

Sunday should be a couple degrees warmer than today with highs in the low 40s. The weather will remain calm into the evening hour, making travel simple and clear for the Super Bowl.

Winter will return next week, with cold temperatures and lake effect snows.

As a side note, today marks my 10th anniversary of forecasting the weather online for the Finger Lakes region! Since launching grotonweather.com in 2006, I have greatly expanded my services, but I have never charged money for them. Would you consider a donation to help offset the expenses of running these websites? Even a small donation of a few dollars is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
