South and southwest winds will set up today between high pressure over the western Atlantic Ocean and a weak low pressure moving through the Upper Great Lakes.

Wind speeds will be around 10 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph. These winds will push mild air into the region, relegating the arctic outbreak to nothing more than a memory.

Temperatures have already been on the rise overnight and will jump up quicker as the sun rises this morning. By this afternoon, most areas should be near or slightly above 40 degrees. That is a “feels like” jump of 70 degrees or more in about 36 hours.

Skies will be cloudy throughout the day with minimal chances for even glimpses of the sun. Tonight, as the weak low approaches, some snow showers will be possible, mainly after midnight. Nothing more than a light coating of accumulation is expected.

Nighttime temperatures will stick to the mid 30s this evening, then fall back to around 30 degrees by dawn Monday as winds turn to the northwest.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Monday: A few early flurries. Some late afternoon sun. Morning lows near 30. Afternoon highs in the low and mid 30s.

Tuesday: Cloudy with a few late rain showers. Morning lows in the low 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Wednesday: A mix of sun and clouds. Morning lows in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Thursday: Cloudy with rain showers. Morning lows in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.
