When Will It Warm Up?

  • While each afternoon will trend warmer than the previous one going forward, next week should consist of a better warming trend.
  • One last hard freeze will be possible Sunday night/Monday morning, before lows crawl their way out of the 30s and into the 40s by midweek.
  • Afternoon highs will continue to rise as well, warming to near 60° Monday and Tuesday and near 70° by Wednesday!
