Algonquin and Lake in the Hills are experiencing positive temperatures for the first time in nearly 40 hours as the mercury climbed to 2 above zero at about 2:52 p.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Though the wind chill is 11 below zero, the current forecast no longer calls for sub-zero daytime temperatures in the seven-day predictions and a high of 11 is forecast for Wednesday. (Though tonight, we'll dip back down to -4). 

Later this week, it's going to feel like a heat wave when temps climb to 35 degrees Friday (and a wintery mix of rain and snow is forecast). Saturday calls for a high of 36, according to the NWS. 

Area schools and other organizations are expected to be open Wednesday.
