— The bitter cold weather pattern will ease over the next few days as the jet stream — which has brought the cold — shifts back northward into Canada.
After a mild start to the month, temperatures have been struggling to get above freezing for much of the last week. While a heat wave certainly is not expected, we can expect temperatures to come back up to where they should be this time of year.
In fact, readings should come above normal as early as this weekend. The average high for this time in December is 38 degrees. Highs are expected to reach into the 40s beginning Saturday and likely will stay well into the 40s through the upcoming week.
So whatever snow is still left on the ground will be history by the end of the weekend.

DAYTON — Two Dayton recreation centers hosted the 2018 World's Largest Swimming Lesson this morning.
The Greater Dayton and Lohrey Recreation Centers taught basic water safety reminding everyone that learning to swim helps prevent drowning. More than 41,000 swimmers in 27 countries on six continents participated in 2017.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning remains the leading cause of injury related death for children ages one to four, and the second leading cause for children under 14. Internationally, the World Health Organization estimates drowning is one of the top five causes of death for children ages one to 14 in 48 of the 85 countries it monitors.
"The earlier you introduce kids to the water, the greater chance of survival," said Ian Morgan, the Head Life Saving Instructor for the City of Dayton. "When you enter a kid into water and teach them swim lesson one through four, you reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent."
In a 2014 survey completed by the American Red Cross, results indicated 54 percent of Americans either can't swim or don't have all of the basic swimming skills.
Other results show parents do not recognize that supervision is key.
