After a chilly start this morning, temperatures will be warming up into the 50s this afternoon.

This Afternoon: Mostly Sunny

Highs: Low 50s | Wind: SW 5

Tonight: Clear Skies

Lows: Low to Mid 30s | Wind: S 5

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy

Highs: Upper 50s | Wind: Sw 5-10

This morning temperatures were 10-20 degrees colder than yesterday morning and many of us found ourselves scraping a bit of ice off the windshield.  Despite the start below freezing, a southwesterly wind and mostly sunny skies will allow temperatures to rise into the lower 50s this afternoon and into the mid to upper 50s tomorrow.  Check out this map from that show the forecast temperature departure for Wednesday. Much of the country will be mild.  

Wednesday Temps above Average

  A weak cold front will pass Wednesday evening, but we don't expect it will bring any rain or snow with it.  Temperatures will temporarily cool a bit behind the front for Thursday, and a stronger storm that is in Texas today will bring a chance of showers Thursday night and Friday.  The warmth returns for the weekend.
