Continued rain chances, melting snow, and frozen ground mean flooding concerns are sticking around. Residents in areas prone to ice jams should prepare accordingly. Winds will relax as we head through the rest of Friday, with temperatures climbing into the 40s by this afternoon. Partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid to upper 40s expected for Saturday and Sunday.
