    Temperatures are expected to surge once again this week following a chilly, but sunny Presidents Day.

    Meteorologists say early clouds Monday quickly give way to sunshine with highs in the mid 40s.

    The week quickly turns milder. Forecasters predict temperatures to rise to the high 40s Tuesday, then surge into the 50s for the remainder of the work week. Temperatures in the 60s are even possible, meteorologists say.

    There will be a few chances for showers later in the week, though no significant storms are expected.

    The weekend will turn cooler, but not too brisk, with highs in the mid-to-upper 40s, forecasters predict. And at this point, meteorologists say the models suggest the tri-state may be in for another warm-up next week.
