    See that snow out there? It won't be around for long.

    Temperatures are expected to soar over the next couple days, reaching a whopping 60 degrees by Thursday. That warm weather should deplete accumulated snow from last week's blizzard, but it also could reveal dreaded seasonal potholes. (For a complete 5-day forecast click here.)

    City officials say they expect more potholes this week because of the warm-up. They warn drivers to be on the look out and to call potholes in to 311. 

    Colder weather has settled in for the morning, giving way to mid-40s by Tuesday afternoon. Highs on Wednesday are 48 to 53 with some fog and rain overnight.

    We'll see the season's warmest readings so far Thursday afternoon: 55 to, yes, 60.
