High pressure will gradually build back into the region behind a departing front today with drier and continued unseasonably mild weather. A storm system then looks to approach from the southwest by Friday with the potential for some rain showers, possibly beginning as some freezing rain and sleet in the colder sheltered valleys, before it turns even milder into the weekend with additional chances for rain showers.
