Hello and good Thursday morning folks. The snow and ice has ended in the area but slick road conditions will exist before temperatures get back above freezing later on today. Continue to use caution and drive slower than normal to compensate for slick spots, and give yourself more time to get to school and work as well as extra room in between your vehicle and others around you. Any school delays can be found here on the weather page on myhighplains.com. Temperatures have dropped to the teens and single digits with wind chills nearing zero so put on your extra layers and cover extremities.
This afternoon, we will reach day time temperatures above 32 degrees as the sky clears out. Highs will be up in the upper 30s and lower 40s with light winds.
The good news is that we'll get on a warming trend that will not be brief. Highs jump to the 50s and 60s from tomorrow into the weekend as we go into Daylight Saving Time.
Early next week will look way more like Spring than this week, with temperatures topping out in the very pleasant 70s and plenty of sunshine.
Make it a great day and drive safe.
