ANDERSON, Ind. — Milder air will slide into the region over the next several days, but the first round won't provide too much of a warm-up. Highs today will climb closer to the freezing mark with a decent amount of sunshine. Another weak weather system will arrive late Saturday into Sunday and that will give us chances of flurries or snow showers. Highs will hover in the lower 30s for the weekend. A brief warm-up arrive for early next week.
