Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
A major winter storm could be headed our way early next week.
Anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow could fall Sunday through Monday night, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. Temperatures will hover in the mid-30s Sunday before plunging into the 20s overnight.
What hopefully would be the final snowstorm of the season as spring struggles to replace winter could start as mix of rain and snow Sunday before changing to all snow after dark, said meteorologist Andy Latto.
“It could be pretty significant,” he said.
By the Monday morning, commuters could be trudging to work in at least 3 inches of snow. The high temperature will only be 38.

Light snow could continue throughout the day before ending by 5 p.m.
The most snow accumulation is expected to fall in the northern suburbs of Butler and Warren counties.
Over the past several days, a northwesterly flow of Arctic air has thrown Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s mercury well below the normal level of 55 degrees for this time of year.
This morning is no exception. It is 20 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Winds are calm at the airport and around downtown Cincinnati, but wind chills are in the mid-teens in the northern suburbs.
Later, the high temperature should reach 44 degrees under mostly sunny skies. The overnight low will fall to 26.
Saturday should be partly sunny and warmer with a high finally cracking 50 degrees.
