It didn’t feel like winter early this morning.

A steady rain fell as temperatures lingered in the 50s. The morning commute moved steadily, a dramatic change from the commute during last week’s winter storm. Snow is melting away thanks to the higher temperatures and rain.

By tonight, the temperatures will plummet once again.

The National Weather Service predicts that the rain will eventually turn to snow by the afternoon hours, then end altogether. Temperatures will fall to 27 degrees by 5 p.m., with wind gusts as a high as 26 miles per hour.

Tonight, partly cloudy skies will be accompanied by a brutal blast of cold air. The low is expect to be -6 degrees, with the wind chill making it feel as low as -26 degrees.

That frigid trend is expected to last throughout the middle of this week. No snow or precipitation is expected by the National Weather Service until Thursday night. Tomorrow’s high is expected to be around 8 degrees, with an expected wind chill value as low as -30. Tuesday night’s low will be -2 degrees, with the wind chill pushing it down to -15 degrees.

Temperatures will warm up on Wednesday to 20 degrees, and slightly higher to 31 degrees on Thursday.
