For the majority of this week, temperatures will be some 10-15 degrees above average in many areas. A lack of snow cover across the Continental 48 and the combination of a high pressure system, to our east-northeast, are responsible for the warm conditions. Temperatures could approach 80 degrees both on Monday and Tuesday.

between double or triple of where it is right now.
