Welcomed Warm Temperatures Will Melt Snow, Ice
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington region is in for a reprieve this week from the seemingly nonstop winter weather.
After an overnight mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain created tricky travel and school delays Tuesday morning, temperatures are expected warm up considerably through the rest of the week.

The early spring-like temperatures will melt snow and ice that has been on the ground since Thursday, when a nor’easter dumped more than a foot of snow on much of the D.C.-Baltimore region.
The mass melting will continue through the rest of the week as temperatures will remain in the 50s and 60s, and even flirt with 70 degrees on Friday.
Rain is expected Wednesday and a thunderstorm is possible Friday, but temperatures will stay plenty warm, which means no chance of snow — at least this week.
Channel 9 meteorologist Topper Shutt says the warm weather won’t last too long, and colder air will move back into the region next week.
