It may not feel like it today, but a thaw is coming. It was 0 degrees out early this morning, but the temperature is on the rise. It should get up to 22 degrees today.

It will break freezing on Wednesday with a high of 39 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. That will be followed by a high of 47 on Thursday and 44 on Friday.

The NWS warns those temperatures could lead to flooding later in the week. The Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather warning for Orleans and the following counties: Niagara, Monroe, Wayne, Cayuga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, Erie and Genesee.

Wertman also took this picture of the cannons at Boxwood Cemetery in Medina. They are by the road on Route 63.
