No serious accumulation is expected as a round of rain, snow and sleet moves our way tonight and continues until skies clear Sunday, according the National Weather Service.

The NWS has a Hazardous Weather Outlook posted for the North Country, as a warm front approaches the area late this afternoon and into tonight, bringing with it some light mixed precipitation, especially tonight.

A continued chance of mixed precipitation is predicted for Saturday morning before it turns to sleet, then rain during the course of the day.

Skies are forecast to clear off Sunday before another warm front moves through, with steadier precipitation late Sunday night into Monday.

High temperatures Saturday and Sunday are expected to be in the high 30s, with lows in the 20s.
