The Winter Storm Warning is officially over.

Snow continues to fall for portions of Kentucky, but as temperatures hover around freezing a wintry mix could be seen in other areas. Arctic air will accompany this next weather system with gusty winds and bitter cold wind chills Friday into next weekend.

Areas of northwest IN, including Michigan City and Gary, reported between 4 and 6 inches of fresh snow on Saturday, the weather service said.

Numbers go up as we head south into Maryland and Virginia with a zone of 2 to 4 across much of Maryland except lower in the northeast and higher in the southeast.

Durham, Orange and Chatham counties are under the advisory, although little snow is expected to accumulate. After morning clouds Monday, the sun will return and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s. Eventually, the snow will come to an end for good Saturday evening around 8 p.m. "Although, outages don't typically start until you see 0.25" of ice adding onto the power lines, which could very well happen in parts of Southside and areas near I-77. A bit of a north breeze will keep wind chills in the teens. The snowfall in Chicago lasted until early Sunday, with wind gusts reaching up to 25 miles per hour at night.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 39.

Sunday: Cloudy. Highs in the lower 30s. Winter Weather Advisories are posted as far south as a couple of counties in Northeastern Georgia!
