Warm-up on the way, but will it last?

News-DemocratFebruary 12, 2014 

Metro-east residents on Wednesday again woke up to a temperature hovering near zero.

But warmer temperatures are on the way.

The high Wednesday is expected to reach 31 degrees under an increasingly cloudy sky, according to the National Weather Service. That's 10 degrees warmer than Tuesday, when the high in the metro-east was 21. Overnight the low will drop down to 15, about 16 degrees warmer than 24 hours before.

On Thursday the high is expected to reach 45 under mostly sunny skies, with an overnight low of 28.

A 40 percent chance of snow is in the forecast for Friday morning. But it is expected to transition to rain after 10 a.m. The high is expected to reach 35 with wind gusts of up to 25 miles an hour, making the day seem much cooler.

Highs this weekend are expected to be in the 40s.
