Temps are finally headed above freezing….A lot of us have enjoyed the snow.  But now, it’s time for the big melt as our temperatures start rising!

As we move through our Tuesday night, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies. A weak front will approach the area, giving way to a couple of isolated to scattered showers.  Some patchy fog is possible tonight. It won’t be nearly as cold as the past several nights. In fact, low temperatures will likely rise into the mid 40s through the night. Winds will blow in from the south between 5 and 15 mph.

We’ll start our Wednesday with a few scattered showers and temperatures in the mid 40s. By afternoon, we’re expecting highs to climb into the mid 50s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. A few isolated showers are possible by afternoon as well.

On Thursday, even warmer weather is in store. We’ll see high temperatures in the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. Friday brings highs in the upper 50s. A cold front moves in, giving way to a few scattered showers into Saturday. Highs will cool back into the 40s on Saturday.
