A good Tuesday to all. Welcome to our worst winter in memory. But you already knew that. Yesterday's 5.9-inch snowfall put us in the record books as the snowiest winter on record with a total snowfall of 53.3 inches. The good news is that much of the snow on the ground will melt today as temps will climb into the mid-40s.

Today's National Weather Service forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high near 46 degrees. South winds will gust as high as 25 mph.

Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low around 24 degrees.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny with a high near 39 degrees with a chance of rain coming during the overnight hours. The overnight low will be around 32 degrees.

New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch are possible. People living along area rivers the streams should keep an eye on ice jams and rain runoff which could cause flooding. 

Thursday's forecast calls for rain with a high near 44 degrees. New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch are possible.

Just think if that rain was snow. On second thought, don't...
