The thermometer at Dayton International Airport topped out at 48 on Tuesday, making it the warmest day of the month in the Dayton region.
The warm weather is expected to continue all week, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Tuesday evening.
There's a good chance for a shower overnight, and that shower could occur anywhere in the Miami Valley, he said. Otherwise, look for clouds to keep temperatures above freezing overnight.
Daytime highs Wednesday will remain in the low to mid-40s.
There's no worry about a refreeze Wednesday night, as temperatures are expected to remain above the freezing mark.
Thursday, rain could affect the morning commute as temperatures are expected to hit the 50s and wind gusts of 50 mph are possible, Simpson said.
Temperatures will drop quickly and that means the raindrops will likely turn to wet snow briefly before ending overnight. No accumulation is expected. The low temp is expected to be about 32 degrees.
For Friday, the high temp should be around 40 degrees with clouds giving way to sun.
On Saturday, temps will start just below freezing before clouds arrive ahead of a cold front with afternoon temps in the lower 40s.
The cold front could bring snow showers, but no accumulation is expected.
Sunday will be a bit colder with a morning low in the mid 20s and an afternoon high in the upper 30s.
