First Alert: Warm up continues this week

(KFVS) -

Things are warming up in the area, well a little.

There is still a layer of sleet under that snow which makes it harder to melt. 

Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade said this evening we will once again see a rapid drop in temperatures after sunset over the snowpack, but probably not as cold as last night. That is thanks to an increase in southerly winds.

Lows by morning will be in the middle teens over the deepest snowpack to lower 20s west. Winds will become gustier through the evening and overnight hours.

Friday will be sunny and warmer. Highs will reach the upper 40s to near 50 west to the upper 30s and lower 40s over the snowpack. 

Temperatures near 60 are expected Sunday.

The best rain and thunderstorm chances will be Sunday night into Monday morning.
