The trend toward mild weather in the East has already begun, but things will really get going Thursday and Friday. Appropriately, spring fever warnings are now in effect for much of the East.
With deepest regrets, I must point out that this warmup is just a tease. Colder weather will return to the Midwest this weekend, then reach the Northeast early next week. The transition between air masses will probably be accompanied by a short period of heavy rain.
