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

    Temperatures will continue to step upward during the second half of this week and could touch 50 degrees in some locations this weekend.

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

    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.

    Additional doses of warm air will swing through during next week, prior to another possible visit by the polar vortex.
