Due to temperatures at or slightly below freezing during the snowfall, some slick or snow-covered roads are expected in some areas late Friday night and early Saturday morning.

Conditions should improve significantly and quickly by Saturday morning as temperatures rise through the mid- to upper 30s and then eventually into the lower 40s by Saturday afternoon. Sunshine will begin to filter back into the area by afternoon, and most of the snow should melt by Saturday night.

Expect mostly sunny skies on Sunday, after a chilly start, with morning temperatures in the mid-20s, rising to the upper 40s by afternoon. Sunshine will continue into the next week, starting on Presidents Day, with highs near 50 Monday afternoon. Overnight lows Monday will drop back into the mid- to upper 20s.

Highs on Tuesday will again reach the upper 40s and lower 50s. Temperatures will become even higher heading into the middle part of next week, with highs in the mid- to upper 50s on Wednesday and Thursday. Some areas may reach 60 degrees by Thursday afternoon.
