Outlook: Ice has developed across many area rivers with the recent
bitter cold. Temperatures will moderate beginning Tuesday as highs
will reach into the low 40s and remain above normal through
Thursday. The beginning of the weekend will start out slightly
cooler than normal, but temperatures will warm again beginning early
next week.  With the warmup in temperatures, ice breakup jamming
will be possible.
