Thursday night temperatures will force residents to pull out the blankets.

Temperatures should increase slightly Friday, although lows will remain in the 40s, meteorologists reported.

The forecast predicts warmer weather will return by the weekend with highs in the 70s and 30 percent chance of rain Sunday.
