Snow today but 60° weather is on the way!

After a chilly start, Wednesday looks to be a pretty typical January day. Expect high temperatures in the upper 40s under partly cloudy skies. That is 15 to 20° warmer than Monday!

And the warming trend continues on Thursday. We will see increasing clouds in the afternoon along with increasing temperatures. We'll climb into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Even warmer weather washes across the area Friday and into the weekend. Expect high temperatures in the lower 60s on Friday with a good chance for showers, mainly in the afternoon.

Some of the wet weather may linger into early on Saturday. But most of the day is looking dry and mild. We will see a mixture of clouds and sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the lower 60s.

The 60° weather sticks around on Sunday but the dry weather does not. Showers are looking likely.

A few morning showers are possible on Monday with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon. It will be noticeably cooler with high temperatures only around 50.

And the cooling trend continues on Tuesday. The mercury will only top out in the low to mid 40s, despite lots of sunshine.
