"At this point we’re expecting the freezing temperatures to be out of the area before it gets cold enough for the rain to turn to freezing rain," said National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Miller.


Miller said a cold front will come through late Monday night and on Tuesday. That front will bring rain to the area.

By the time temperatures drop below freezing late on Tuesday, the rain will be gone, he said.


After a quick glance at local records, Miller said the forecasted low of 31 will likely be just off the record low temperature of 30.


The cold should move out of the area quickly, with temperatures returning to the 50s and 60s by Thursday, Miller said.
