Sunday’s high temperatures in the Midlands will be up slightly from Saturday’s chill, and skies will be sunny.
Sunday’s highs are expected around 50, climbing slightly Monday and Tuesday to the upper 50s and even 60s before dipping back down Wednesday and Thursday, according to forecasts. There is a chance of rain midweek as well.
Meanwhile, the Mid-Atlantic states starting digging out Sunday morning from a weekend storm, though officials in many cities said it could take days.
That includes a complicated picture for air travelers, after 7,000 weekend flights were canceled: United Airlines said limited service might begin later Sunday in New York City, but airports in the Washington D.C. area were likely to remain closed Sunday, and other airlines began cutting Monday service.
The massive snowstorm brought both the nation’s capital and its largest city to a stop, dumping as much as 3 feet of snow and stranding tens of thousands of travelers. At least 18 deaths were blamed on the weather, resulting from car crashes, shoveling snow and hypothermia.
