Get your sunglasses!! The snow and sunshine will be causing a lot of retina strain the next few days, so better to avoid the headache early and make sure you have a pair of sunglasses handy. With the sunshine, we will see things slowly start to warm up as well, which is a good and bad thing. The roads that still remain snow covered, like mine, will finally reveal pavement again, but at night when we drop below freezing, it will ice back over until it is all thawed and dry. So keep that in mind the next few days, black ice will be visiting us again.
Another thing that will help the melting will be light rain showers for the end of the week and the weekend. Right now things look to be very light, but will still help the melting, and additionally will give more moisture to re-freeze at night, so another positive right along with the negative. BUT!! We will see 40 degrees, if not this week, next week for sure. As a matter of fact, it looks like things will remain on the "warm" side until around the last week of January before another strong arctic system plows back into the area. So enjoy it while it is warm!!
Have a good one!
