Dylan Long of Wilkes-Barre rides his bike up North Mains Street, Wilkes-Barre, at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday while the temperature was around 13 degrees. He was riding to his aunt’s house. The morning started out even colder before a gradual warming got underway. For the weekend, expect temperatures somewhat closer to average for this time of year, which is closer to spring, after all.
