The precipitation is the product of a slow-moving weather system across the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic, NWS said.

But by Sunday, it is expected to be off to sea, leaving mild conditions and some clouds in the forecast for Sunday and early next week. Highs are forecast in the upper 50s to lower 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies through St. Patrick's Day on Tuesday.
