We could see enough wintry mix to slicken roads before precipitation changes to rain tonight. A quick arctic blast follows later tomorrow into Tuesday.
Game over for Super Bowl snowstorm? Not quite, but it would probably take a Hail Mary for snow lovers to get the win. Icy roads are still possible on Sunday, though.

Sunshine doesn't do much to counter today's deep chill. A storm system approaching from the west promises deteriorating weather tomorrow and into Monday.
The winds are slow to die down tonight and Saturday, which means punishing wind chills as air temperatures fall and hold below freezing.
How forecasters predict high winds, decide between wind advisories and high wind warnings, and identify other factors contributing to wind damage.
This weekend will be frosty for sure, but a bitter chill is on the way early next week. Parts of the Northeast could see low temperatures running 40 degrees below average leading to dangerous wind chills.
On Thursday, it seemed ingredients were potentially coming together for a significant snowstorm Sunday into Monday. Today, not so much.
D.C. snow-lovers can probably relate.
Snow flurries may dance early as big winds begin to roar. Those winds last through the day, making it rather uncomfortable to be outside.
Even historic winters have their quiet periods. Once the January thaw was over, it was time to rev up one of the greatest two-week snow bonanzas ever.
