The warm front that brought us freezing rain and a slippery commute first thing this morning moved northward this afternoon. Clouds broke for some peeks of sunshine and temperatures pushed well into the 40s the snowpack started to melt. There is a weak cold front that will bring a shower or flurry to some spots this evening then later tonight will become partly to mostly clear. The clearing sky along with slackening winds and still a solid snowcover will help to push temperatures back down well into the 20s tonight. Be careful as some wet roadways may refreeze and there could also be some pockets of fog later at night which can deposit a thin layer of ice on some untreated surfaces. Thursday will start off with some sunshine but clouds will increase again as another warm front approaches the area. This front will bring some showers or drizzle Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening. Temperatures will slowly rise through the 40s Thursday and will likely rise into the lower 50s in places behind the warm front later Thursday night into Friday morning. A more powerful cold front will then cross the region Friday with showers and perhaps a thunderstorm. It will also become windy Friday afternoon with clouds breaking for some sunshine during the afternoon. Temperatures will slowly fall Friday afternoon but it will not be too cold behind this front. Saturday will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine with just the chance for a sprinkle or flurry along with highs in the middle to upper 40s. The next front will bring an increase in cloudiness Sunday followed by snow showers. Behind that front, very cold air will seep back into the region for next week along with several rounds of snow showers.
