A mild Sunday will kick off a stretch of unseasonably warm weather that is expected to soar into the 60s on Tuesday and near 70 on Wednesday. That could include record-setting high temps.
But first, on the President's Day holiday, temperatures are expected in the low 50s with showers in the evening.
The storm on Saturday night dumped about 5 inches of snow by midnight, but little to no accumulation was visible amid light rain.
