The city has yet to see its first snow accumulation of winter. It's now the latest into a season without snow on record.

There will be several opportunities for snow, sleet or freezing rain over the central and possibly eastern United States.

A stray raindrop or snow pellet is possible today. Mainly dry through Sunday afternoon.
