A nice rebound in temperatures is expected as we go into the weekend with highs Friday-Sunday in the 40s. However, there are signs that bitter cold will be returning into next week as a deep trough of low pressure settles in. We'll have a chance of a rain/snow mix next Monday with snow chances Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures may not even get out of the teens next Wednesday. --Danielle Dozier
