High pressure will slide offshore this morning allowing a return flow of milder air to develop with a mix of sun and high clouds. Drier and gradually milder weather will continue to build into mid-week. A storm system then looks to approach by late Thursday into Friday, with the potential for some freezing rain and sleet changing to rain, depending on how fast the precipitation arrives in the region.
