In the wake of the storm that will bring snow to the area Tuesday morning, warmer weather will follow for the balance of the week.
Expect slow travel and disruptions to daily activities Tuesday morning in the wake of the snow. However, rising temperatures will cause melting snow by day Wednesday into Friday.

Lower temperatures over the weekend will slow the rate of natural melting.
