A good Friday to all. Over the next few days we're going to feel something we haven't felt in months — actual above-freezing snow-melting warmth. But before we do, we'll have to endure another round of snow/sleet.

Here's how it all plays out according to the National Weather Service.

Today we will see increasing clouds with a high near 44 degrees. Winds will be from the south.

Tonight there's a slight chance of rain before 9 p.m., then a chance of rain and sleet between 9 p.m. and midnight. After midnight, snow is likely with total sleet/snow accumulation of less than a half an inch likely.

The overnight low will be around 27 degrees.

The chance of snow continues into Saturday morning, then skies will turn mostly sunny with a high near 34 degrees and a low around 13 degrees.

Then we should see temps in the upper 40s and lower 50s for the next few days.

And don't forget to set your clocks ahead an hour Saturday night as daylight savings time begins.

Kinda makes you want to break out the gas grill, doesn't it?
