The worst of winter’s weather fury might be about over.

Temperatures are expected to become milder after this weekend, with readings a week from today forecast to hit the lower 50s.

Daytime highs Monday through Feb. 22 will range from 38 degrees to 52 degrees with nighttime lows only dropping into the mid-20s to mid-30s, AccuWeather.com said.

So far, February is 7.7 degrees below normal with an average monthly temperature of 19.7 degrees. That follows a chilly January that saw average temperatures at around 20.3 degrees — nearly 6 degrees below normal.

Tom King, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Cleveland, said it looks like “the grip of the arctic air mass is loosening” across the area.

“I’m no groundhog, but I would say if it comes back, it is not going to come back with a vengeance,” King said.

Alan Reppert, an AccuWeather.com meteorologist, said that “it does look like we have turned the corner for the really cold air, and warmer weather is on the way.”

Reppert was quick to note, however, that “it doesn’t rule out the chance for some snowstorms” in the coming weeks.
