Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies will continue the rest of the day and through the weekend as well as temperatures ranging from the 30s and 40s.

High pressure ridge amplifies over the Pacific northwest for the start of the work week.

Temperatures will continue to trend warmer through next week with mostly dry conditions.

For the first time since February 2, we could see above average afternoon high temperatures.

The main concern over the next week will be watching this warming trend and how fast snow melts.

It is possible that low-land flooding occurs along with basement flooding and water in roadways.

The ice jam potential could once again increase as well.

Prepare now and move equipment and livestock to higher ground. Make sure your basement sump-pump is operational.

This warm up looks to continue to be gradual, with temperatures above freezing in the afternoon and then below freezing overnight. But, the situation will continue to be monitored.
