We’ve warmed up to 15 degrees, from 14 degrees at 6 a.m. Hope your pipes are intact and you were able to scrape that heavy ice off your windshield.

The sun is out, and we’ll warm up to 43 degrees eventually, then back down to 27 tonight. We’ll feel a south southwest wind at 5-10 mph today.

Thursday, we’re sunny again and will climb to 51 degrees with west southwest winds at 5-10 mph. Thursday night will be 27 again.

Sunny and 48 for a high on Friday, and another low of 27.

The weekend is a mixed bag. Saturday will be sunny and near 51. A 40 percent chance of showers moves in Saturday night, with a low of 37, 10 degrees warmer than the previous three nights.

Expect showers Sunday and a high near 60 degrees. The chance of rain is 80 percent. The chance of rain Sunday night is 60 percent, with a low that will be higher than the highs of the previous week, 53 degrees.

Tuesday also has a 30 percent chance of showers, with a high near 59.
