Daily brief (2/14): Top picks from the Springfield media

Happy Valentine’s Day! A cloudy start will gradually clear today, making way for mostly sunny skies and a high of 44.

The day will also start above freezing in some areas, so the snow should be melting.

Rain is possible tonight after midnight, and showers are likely tomorrow, with up to a half-inch of precipitation possible. A high of 54 is expected.

The rain should clear out by Thursday, with sunny skies into the weekend.
