As we begin Sunday, the wind has already ramped up ahead of the next storm system. Wind out of the south today will help warm things up in tandem with abundant sunshine from high pressure in the region. Expect a spring-like day after a cold morning. Some patchy fog is around but will clear up as temperatures rise.

Things are far from quiet, regardless that there are few clouds in the sky. Patchy morning river-valley fog will clear as the sun warms things up. Then, expect plenty of sunshine for that rodent to see his shadow. Football weather is key for those wanting to get some outdoor time in before the big game. We should kiss 60 degrees this afternoon. The warming trend continues into early week thanks to persistent southerly flow ahead of the next rain-maker. Rain will arrive late Tuesday after a cloud increase and will continue until late week. Rain will be widespread and light to moderate with heavy mixed in. Due to the spring-like air, some storms are possible through the middle of the week. Rain has a chance to mix with snow on the tail end of the storm as winter temperatures come crashing in behind the cold front on Friday and Saturday.
