Cloudy skies, light-to-moderate breezes, and steady temperatures in the low 20s are projected for Sunday night.

"It's too far out to speculate on how much accumulation we could have", said Corey Mead, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. O'Hara says normal temperatures for this time of year feature highs of around 41 degrees and lows of around 26 degrees.

Freezing rain will likely be before 8 a.m. Sunday, then freezing rain, possibly mixed with sleet between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., then rain showers after 11 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Bridges and overpasses will be trickiest if not treated.

Trump shamelessly uses "Dreamers" as leverage for border wall funding
If that work was completed, more than half of the almost 2,000 mile-border with Mexico would be lined with a physical barrier. So the funds Trump seeks from Congress would be enough to say that by 2027, just over half the border is walled off.

Sunday will remain very cold, but the winds will decrease a bit as the day goes along, with a projected afternoon high temperature of 22 degrees and wind chills in the single digits.

Since ground temperatures have been at or below freezing since Christmas, it looks like Monday morning will be messy. Little to no ice accumulation is expected, but we know it doesn't take much. By noon, most of the area will have seen a transition to cold rain as highs approach 40 degrees. Most activity will begin to taper off late Monday. The temperatures should warm up Monday with a high around 59 degrees, he said. Localized higher amounts are possible.
