After frigid nights, warmer days

Rowan County will continue thawing out today, and by the weekend, residents will be shedding their heavy coats in warmer temperatures under sunny skies.
The N.C. Department of Transportation spent Wednesday again scraping and treating roads throughout the county and sunshine helped melt ice off roads, parking lots and sidewalks.
Temperatures dropped into the teens overnight, though, and black ice remained a hazard this morning and will be a threat for the next day or two.
Today will again be sunny, but highs will be only in the upper 30s today and Friday, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Lows will be in the teens.
On Saturday and Sunday, however, highs will climb into the mid-40s under mostly sunny skies, with predicted lows of 24 Saturday night and 30 Sunday night.
Monday, the Martin Luther King holiday, brings another chance of precipitation. While that could take the form of rain or freezing rain, forecasters expect a high near 50 degrees so anything frozen shouldnít linger.
Mondayís low of 36 will be higher than some of the high temperatures this week.
And on Tuesday, temperatures could break the 50-degree mark.
Those temperatures are close to normal for this time of year.
