On the heels of Winter Storm Wilbur, more snow chances are ahead late this week and into the weekend across parts of the Midwest and East.

However, April snow clouds have a silver lining.

Heavy snow and light freezing drizzle and ice accumulations are expected. Tuesday night's low temperature is pegged at 12 degrees, and the current cold record, set in 2002, was 15 degrees.

Kines' upbeat prediction held out and the sun showed around noon, melting much of the snow.

A sharp arctic cold front associated with the Colorado low will blast across the region early Wednesday morning with strong southwesterly winds. Otherwise, the weather will be fairly quiet on Saturday with sunny to partly cloudy skies and high temps around 30.

We're still a bit too far out to be sure, though, forecasters said, but basically, don't get your hopes up for spring conditions just yet.

According to National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Locker, March was near average in temperature and snowfall.

A difference in temperatures by a couple of degrees one way or another could lead to more snow or more rain as part of the mixture.

Severe weather hits the United Kingdom over the Easter Bank holiday weekend.

The official record snowfall for April 3, dating to 1945, is 3.7 inches.

Once the storm moves out tomorrow, Locker said it will remain cool. Rowland and other forecasters believe it might take until the third week of April for a consistent pattern of spring weather to arrive. Temperatures will be a touch warmer, high look to reach the upper 30s in most locations. On / off snow showers will linger into the afternoon and mix in with some rain at times as we warm up to 37 degrees. In addition, winds gusting as high as 35 miles per hour could cause some blowing and drifting snow.
