February's weather roller coaster is about to take another downhill plunge.
Temperatures, which climbed to 41 Monday after a frigid weekend, are expected to start out near 40 today and drop sharply to around 20 tonight. The forecast calls for rain mixed with wet snow.
Wednesday will see temperatures struggling to rise out of the teens, with lake-effect snow expected south of Lakes Erie and Ontario. The overnight low is forecast to dip into the single digits.
The arctic conditions are expected to ease as the weekend approaches.
