Frosty weather slowly gives way to spring warmth

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

ROCKFORD (WREX) — We are past the coldest day of the week, but temperatures don't spring immediately back to warm conditions. We do see average weather soon, but it will take a few days.

Warmer by Friday:

While warmer weather is on the way, the slow rise means we have to deal with chilly weather for another night. Temperatures fall to frosty levels again overnight.

Temperatures slowly warm up to near 60 degrees by the end of the work week.

Thursday sees the return of the 50's, but that may be only 5 degrees warmer than Wednesday. The weather still feels cool at times, especially during the morning. Look for a mostly to partly cloudy sky and breezy northwest winds to round out conditions.

Friday is when the weather may feel like mid-April again. Temperatures are right around 60 degrees, which is close to average for this time of year. The weather stays partly cloudy and dry.

The average weather on Friday disappears quickly, as temperatures drop quickly going into the weekend.

Slightly cooler, slight chance for rain:

The weather dips a little this weekend, but at least we don't head back into the 40's. Temperatures fall to the middle 50's, then Sunday warms slightly into the upper 50's.

After rising away from the chilly 40's, we cool slightly this weekend.

The weekend gets blanketed by cloud cover, but we could see few peeks of sunshine every so often. A slight chance for scattered sprinkles and drizzly weather hover over the weekend as well. Most of the weekend remains dry, but keep an eye on the 13 Weather Authority app. Scattered sprinkles are possible Saturday afternoon, and again Sunday evening. If we do see rain, the showers will be very light and not amount to much for rainfall.

Wet weather could return this weekend, but rainfall would be very light.

The best chance for rain in the near term looks to be Monday evening into Tuesday morning. Light rain showers sweep on through with a cold front. Monday gets back into the 60's, then the front drops us down into the low 50's for Tuesday and Wednesday. Get used to this kind of weather. Dry conditions with highs in the 50's last throughout next week.
