Southwesterly winds overnight will help temperatures continue to climb after midnight EST. Forecast models has the wintry mix transitioning to all rainfall before the morning commute.

Scattered rain showers will linger into Wednesday as highs soar into the 50s late in the evening! The warmest day of the week is Thursday with a high of 57°.
