Arctic air will settle in Saturday, capping high temperatures in the 20s and making it feel more like the single digits and teens.

The cold air will be a key factor in a possible Sunday snowmaker that could bring several inches of heavy, wet snow to the area. Snow should break out late in the day Sunday and Sunday evening. Most areas could see completely white ground by Monday morning.
