A warming trend expected to begin today may seem like a blessing after a record-setting deep freeze, but along with the relief comes new worries.

Today's projected high of 39 may feel warmer following Tuesday's bitterly cold temperatures. With the warming trend comes a chance of sleet and freezing rain overnight tonight, followed by a chance of rain through Saturday when another chance of wintery precipitation enters the forecast.

The forecast today calls for a chance of rain, mainly after 1 p.m., with a high of 39. Overnight temperatures will drop to the mid-30s with Thursday warming to the low 50s with a 50 percent chance of rain.
