Good morning! High pressure will provide mostly sunny skies today. Temperatures started out below freezing this morning outside of the major cities, mostly due radiational cooling overnight. This also resulted in some black ice forming on roadways. However, a strong upper-level ridge and southwest flow will lead to some unseasonably warm temperatures by this afternoon, in the upper 40s to middle 50s.
Clouds will increase this evening as a cold front associated with an upper-level trough approaches from the west. Not a great deal of moisture is expected with this front, but some lift from a strong mid-upper level jet should aid in the development of some rain showers tonight. Temperatures will likely remain mostly in the 40s through tonight with the clouds and rainfall late.
