If warmth-starved West Volusians can hold out for a few more days, they will face some relief from the cold. The weather will gradually heat up a bit.
After a low of 41 degrees and a breezy high of only 62 degrees yesterday, Feb. 13, today we can look forward to a high of 64 degrees, Weather Underground reports. Cupid may not get frostbite this Valentine's Day, but he'll wish he had a sweater.
By Monday, Feb. 17, which is Washington's Birthday and Presidents Day, we can expect a high of 74 degrees, and by Thursday, Feb. 20, the high is expected to break 80 degrees.
West Volusians can count themselves fortunate not to face the relentless winter storms that have been pounding other states.
The National Weather Service reports that a nor'easter that delivered heavy snow and ice to many Southern and Eastern states will should exit the East Coast by late tonight, Friday, Feb. 14, with a goodbye card of heavy snow and coastal rain in New England.
Western states have also received a good amount of snow recently, as the photo from Idaho shows.
