Mild trend will continue for awhile

High temperatures will continue into the mid & upper 30s for the extended forecast, with some lower 40s possible in some areas.  Computer models show no major change in this new pattern for at least the next week or so.  The milder trend looks like it will hold through next weekend.

The snow cover from recent events will thwart some of the initial warming.  If we didn't have any snow cover or cold air hugging the surface, we would easily jump through the 40s and 50s during this period.

Temps will remain well above the normal high/low of 31° / 16°
