    There is some good news for folks struggling with the record cold in the Cleveland area and over much of the Central and Eastern states.

    Temperatures were about 20 degrees higher Wednesday afternoon compared to Tuesday afternoon around the same time. Temperatures will continue to step upward during the second half of this week and could touch 50 degrees in some locations this weekend.

    The warming trend will not be without precipitation, however. A bit of snow will be in the vicinity into Thursday.

    The January thaw will be accompanied by drenching rain Friday night into Saturday.

    In the wake of the storm, it will turn cooler, but not colder immediately. This is because the source of the air moving in Sunday will be from the Pacific Ocean.

    Another dose of warm air is likely to swing through during the middle of next week.
