After last week's sub-freezing temperatures, a relatively warm stretch will kick of the coming week.

Mostly sunny skies will prevail Sunday and Monday, as temperatures reach the mid- to upper 40s. Overnight lows will be in the mid-teens.

Tuesday marks the start of another cooling period as the temperatures drop to the upper 30s during the day and low teens at night.

Below-freezing conditions continue Wednesday, with a high only in the mid-20s, and an overnight low in the single digits.

Thursday and Friday will see highs hovering around the freezing mark. Thursday's low will be in the mid-teens, while single digits return overnight Friday with some chance of snow as a cold front moves across the area.

The potential for snow continues Saturday although forecast models differ on the likelihood. The high will remain in the upper teens.
