Warm temperatures have replaced the freezing cold and dumps of heavy snow the area experienced in 2017. Temperatures on average have been around 30 degrees warmer the first seven days of 2018 with very little snow on the ground. Rain Tuesday morning across much of the area turned what snow remained into slush. The switchup is welcomed by those who endured last year’s worst winter in what many say was more than 50 years. Long-range forecasts call for the moderate weather to continue.
