Warmer weather is expected again this weekend along with rain.  This brings up the question "will there be ice jams again?".  The answer is unlikely, mainly because this thaw is going to be short and not as dramatic as the previous ones.  Also, we don't expect the rain to be heavy this weekend.  We'll continue to keep an eye on things though and we'll 

The weekend actually starts out cold, with temperatures in the teens Saturday morning.  Watch out if you're heading out Friday night or early Saturday.  We expect patchy black ice again like we saw on Thursday night.  By Saturday afternoon, temperatures climb above freezing and another January thaw begins.  Highs on Saturday are expected to climb into the mid 40s in many areas (cooler to the north and east of Utica).

The weather turns active next week, with a storm expected to pass east on Monday.  We'll continue to monitor the trends with that one.  Colder weather follows for Tuesday and Wednesday.
