A mid-week surge of warm air in the FLX

Wednesday morning started off with some showers across the Finger Lakes. These showers were associated with a push of warmer air aloft. This warmer air aloft will be translating to warmer temperatures at ground level as well.Very mild air is situated to our southwest, with 7am EST temperatures well into the 50s and even some 60s across the Ohio and mid-Mississippi River Valleys. As low pressure over the Plains organizes and tracks northeast, this bubble of warm air will get dragged northeast along with it. This will mean temperatures in the upper 40s today, with overnight temperatures only dropping a few degrees into the mid 40s. This will get us off and running for a balmy Thursday, with highs in the mid and upper 50s.The warmth will come with some rain, especially during the mid and late afternoon. It will also be short lived. Temperatures will fall behind a cold front, with lows Friday morning in the mid 30s and highs Friday afternoon not much higher. The chillier air will stick around for the weekend, but a brief warm up is possible again Monday before some more substantial cold from the middle of next week.
