Keep digging: more snow expected for St. Lawrence Valley Saturday night
Friday, December 28, 2012 - 9:11 am

As the North Country continues to dig out from what is surely the biggest snowstorm of the last two winters so far, some more snowfall could be on its way tomorrow.

The National Weather Service's seven-day forecast is calling for around an inch of snow Saturday, but they are holding out the possibility of several more inches of the white stuff Saturday night into Sunday morning.

And there is little chance of sunshine and temperatures rising above the freezing mark in the next week, so melting will be at a minimum.

The high today will be in the mid 20s, dipping down into the single digits tonight and back to the mid 20s tomorrow.

Overnight lows through the next week will be no higher than about 10 degrees, according to the NWS, with the highest daytime reading expected to be no higher than about 30 degrees -- that's for Monday.
