The National Weather Service was predicting an 80 percent chance of up to 11 inches of snow today, with a high of only 37.

Warmer weather’s predicted for Friday, with a high of around 50, and Sunday’s high will be around 66, with a chance of thunderstorms. The following Monday’s high is forecast to dip to 46, however.
