After frigid nights, warmer days
Rowan County is slowly thawing out today, and by Sunday residents will be shedding their coats under sunny skies.
The N.C. Department of Transportation is still scraping and treating roads throughout the county, and the threat of black ice will remain for the next several mornings.
The sun is taking over today, though temperatures won’t climb out of the 30s — and nighttime lows will drop into the teens — until Saturday, when the National Weather Service predicts the high will be 44 degrees.
Sunday will be even warmer, with a high near 50 degrees and a low of 34 — warmer than some of this week’s high temperatures.
Monday, the Martin Luther King holiday, the temperature will climb to near 50 again and Tuesday it will eclipse that mark, the Weather Service says. Rain is possible both days.
Those temperatures are close to normal for this time of year.
