Clear & very cold tonight with temperatures in the low teens. Weather advisories expired but be careful on untreated streets. Still some icy spots out there! Chilly start Sunday with a sun/cloud mix in the morning. Daytime temperatures will actually break above freezing with highs in the upper 30s in the lower elevations. Moisture returns late Sunday into Monday with scattered rain showers. Watch for freezing rain by Monday morning with lows near freezing. Breezy & warmer with periods of rain for Monday and Tuesday. Winds out of the south will put temperatures nearly 20° above normal with highs into the 40s & 50s. Continued breezy Wednesday as a strong cold front crosses the eastern US by Wednesday night/Thursday next week. That'll bring temps in the teens and 20s with snow to round out the week next week. Temperatures on this 850mb map (5000ft) are a good gauge of temperatures at the surface. There's Tuesday on the left, Wednesday night in the middle and Thursday night on the right...Back to reality!
