By Sunday, a few models are suggesting the potential for another round of wintry weather as a low pressure system works our way from the south into much colder air. Models differ on the timing, track and strength. While some bring the system in Sunday, others keep the moisture to our Southeast. There’s still a lot of time to keep watching this one, so stay tuned.
