This is all because our dew point is increasing, and therefore preventing temperatures from falling.

Clouds will thin out as the day goes on Friday. We will see a slight warm-up into the 30s by midweek.

SUNDAY: A light wintry mix of flurries, freezing drizzle, sleet, and freezing rain is possible during the morning hours.

Leave a drip of water in one of your faucets to avoid freezing pipes. Now is the time to take any precautions necessary to compensate for the cold temperatures. Enjoy it, because we're tracking plummeting temperatures on Sunday and Monday. Monday will have clouds clearing, especially later in the evening.
