Forecast: Temperatures bottom out today
Slow but steady warming into work week
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Temperatures will begin to climb this week but that means they've got to have somewhere to climb from. That's where today comes in. Highs will struggle to get out of the 20s before beginning a slow climb up to more seasonable readings by mid-week. Some flurries are possible tomorrow night, but other than that expect steadily improving weather this week.
Today (Sunday): Lots more sun is the good news! The bad news is that our high temperatures for the day will likely be as low as we've seen for the past few days, topping out in the upper-20s to near freezing for most, about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday. One good thing is that the winds will begin to relent, though they'll still be noticeable, out of the north at 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: In a word, chilly. Another bitterly cold night is on tap for the region. Clear skies mean temperatures will again dip well into the teens with the coldest areas north and west where more expansive snow cover persists. Winds will further diminish overnight, weakening to near calm by morning . Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through Wednesday....
Tomorrow (Monday): The heat wave begins today! Well, not really. But at least we'll warm up above freezing with highs in the mid-30s -- that's still below average though -- under partly cloudy skies, perhaps turing mostly cloudy by or during the afternoon. Winds will generally be from the west and light. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly cloudy skies keep us warmer, but bring the chance for some flurries or snow showers as a weak cold front passes by. Overnight lows will be in the low-to-mid 20s and winds will be light and variable, varying with the frontal passage. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday dawns with any lingering flurries or snow showers tapering off and skies clearing out once again. Temperatures continue the slow uphill climb, warming into the upper 30s. Expect another cool overnight period, with partly cloudy skies and lows near 20 degrees. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday should turn out to be fairly nice. Mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low-to-mid 40s will be a welcome change to what we've seen in recent weeks. Confidence: Medium
