First Alert Forecast: trending warmer into this weekend
Slow Improvements Expected Friday (Source: WLBT)

We had a week of ALERT DAYS after two winter storms brought lasting impacts to the area... Fortunately, today’s sunshine helped to melt lingering ice on roadways, allowing for safer commutes across the region. Unfortunately, temperatures will be dropping to near 20° again tonight, refreezing any precipitation leftover on the roads. Watch out for black ice tomorrow morning for this reason!

The cold will be short-lived as high pressure builds over the region, allowing for a sunny Saturday and highs near 50°. We’ll drop to near freezing Sunday morning, before we lift to 60° by Sunday afternoon! Our next cold front will be moving through late Sunday into Monday and will bring scattered showers to the region... No winter weather is anticipated.

Although we’ll temporarily cool down Monday, our warm-up picks back up into next week and highs will reach the mid-upper 60s Tuesday-Thursday ahead of another cold front.
