While we will see some sunshine today, it won't help out our temperatures. Highs will only get into the teens and twenties this afternoon. Secondary roads will remain quite slick, so use caution if driving on the lesser travelled roads
Tonight will be quite cold, with temperatures dropping into the single digits above and below zero. However, Monday will be much improved. After a cold start, lots of sunshine and temperatures in the 30's to around 40 will feel much better than today.
