After a bit of sloppy, slushy mush made of snow and rain Tuesday morning, we will get back on track with our pleasant weather.

The mush will likely slow things down during the morning commute, but actual accumulations will remain under an inch, Morning Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow said. A bit more snowfall is likely in areas to the south of the Twin Cities metro area.

Clearing skies will develop Tuesday afternoon, and Ken says the sun will likely make an appearance.

On Monday afternoon, we experienced the warmest afternoon temperatures since Nov. 16 of last year; Meteorologist Dave Dahl says we hit 53 degrees.

A bit of a dip is expected Wednesday and Thursday with afternoon temperatures in the middle 30s, and another slight cooling is on tap for the end of this upcoming weekend. Temperatures should be in the low- to mid-40s on Friday and Saturday.

The warmer weather meant there were a lot of puddles and some street flooding Monday. City crews in Minneapolis are working to remove melting snow from catch basins that drain water into the storm sewer.
