Milder air is moving northeastward as a warm front lifts through New England.

Temperatures across Pennsylvania and western New York have soared well into the 60's. Even a few locations, including Syracuse, N.Y. have reached the 70 degree mark. This is pretty impressive given high temperatures across the region should generally be in the 40's.

A stationary front remains draped across extreme southern New England. To the north of this front, damp, chilly air is locked in. Portions of interior Massachusetts are still in the lower 40's this afternoon. Even clouds and drizzle lingered across much of Connecticut today. The front was slow to move, as often is the case when cold air gets locked in near the surface in December.

As the day wears on, the frontal system will continue to move northeast. Temperatures are expected to hold steady or slowly rise into the evening hours. Tonight, don't expect chilly air as readings will likely stay in the 40's to lower 50's.
