Do not be surprised if you catch spring fever this week if you live in the eastern half of the U.S.

A significant warming trend will send the mercury into near record high territory by the end of the work week, providing a stark difference from the bitter cold that has gripped this part of the country over the last few weeks.

New Daily Low Records Could be Set With Warming Trend

The intrusion of Arctic air finally lifted in the eastern U.S., leaving unseasonably warm temperatures for residents to enjoy. The weather will feel more like spring than the middle of winter for millions of Americans.

However, while the warmer weather will certainly feel nice, it will come with a surge of moisture to help along the thaw.

How warm will it get?

Forecasters are predicting that some communities may see new daily low records fall by Friday. The warm-up will feel even more noticeable when compared to the frigid readings of just a few days ago.

Temperatures hovering in the single digits and into the 30s last week will be replaced by readings that will climb as high as the 60s.

The last of the Arctic air is predicted to move off into the Atlantic Ocean by the end of the day Wednesday. This last gasp of freezing temperatures has been responsible for the influx of ice and snow over portions of New England to start the week.

The warming trend has already begun in the Midwest and into the Mississippi Valley. This trend will expand farther to the east as the week progresses, eventually delivering the warmth to the Eastern Seaboard.
