Behind a warm front, Sunday afternoon temperatures soared into the 50s in most of the area.
While a lot of dry time will be with us overall, expect the chance for a bit of drizzle or patches of light rain, more north than south through the overnight hours. Even in places that see some clearing, patchy fog is possible as lows settle to the 30s to the low 40s.
Temperatures rise even more as Monday will feature highs topping out well into the 50s.
Along with the warmer temperatures also comes the concern of flooding due to snow melt and ice jams. Some movement of ice is already occuring and this is something we will be closely monitoring through midweek.
Rain showers enter the forecast mainly Monday night. Behing a cold front, early temps around 40 will gradually fall through the gusty 30s on Tuesday.
Our weather turns more active by midweek, as chilly high pressure gives way to a weather system from the Ohio Valley that could bring a wintry mix to the area from Wednesday into part of Thursday, followed by a period of rain.
At this point it looks like another cold front will move through during Friday introducing a more significant cooldown but with mainly dry weather in the region toward the weekend. Stay tuned for updates on late week details.
