Where did winter go?….It’s feeling a lot more like spring than winter these days as high pressure builds in from the south. High temperatures should be in the upper 40s this time of the year, but over the next couple of days, we’re expecting quite a warm up.  So, as we go through this Sunday, high temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 60s under mostly sunny skies and south winds at 10 to 15 mph. Tonight, we’re expecting mostly clear skies with lows in the mid and upper 40s. On Monday, many areas will be in the lower 70s for highs under a mix of sun and clouds.  A weak cold front slides in Monday night into Tuesday, which could give way to a couple of isolated showers. Highs will cool into the mid and upper 50s Tuesday. A higher chance of rain moves in by Wednesday as a stronger cold front moves in. A couple of thunderstorms are also possible. A few more showers are possible Friday.

Today: Mostly Sunny. Warmer. High temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds: S/SW 10-15 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Chilly. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 40s. Winds: S 5-15 mph.

Tomorrow: Sun and Clouds. Warm. High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.
