At least there is no new snow expected in the metro-east Thursday.

But the snow already on the ground isn't likely to go anywhere any time soon. According to the extended forecast, the temperature won't top the freezing mark for at least a week.

The high Thursday is only expected to reach 12 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. A 9 mph breeze will make the wind chill factor seem like it's 10 below zero outside.

Thursday night the low will drop to zero with a wind chill factor of 20 below.

Snow works its way back into the forecast Friday with a 40 percent chance during the evening hours. Accumulation is expected to be light. The high temperature Friday will be 17 with an overnight low of 12.

There's a 30 percent chance of light snow Saturday with the highest temperature of the week expected: 30. Overnight the low will be 14 under mostly cloudy skies.
