Extended outlook forecast:
After Tuesday's big chill, temperatures will begin to moderate on Wednesday. This trend of warmer weather will come courtesy of a building ridge of high pressure that will peak in strength by Thursday and Friday. Late-week highs will warm into the 40s and 50s across the Plain ahead of a modest cool down Saturday.
