Slowly getting warmer. No snow in the forecast.
I wanted to say “still no snow,” but we had some brief measurable snow a few days ago. A weak cold front moved through last night, although the clouds and snow stayed to our north. Temperatures will stay slightly below normal today, similar to yesterday, although we should gradually start getting warmer through the weekend with highs above 50 expected by Sunday. Look out for possible freezing drizzle Thursday night and Friday morning.
