Sunny and warm, then a little rain for the weekend….It doesn’t feel like March at all! Normal high temperatures are in the mid 50s this time of the year. But as we move through the next several days, we’re saying hello to the 60s, 70s, and 80s!  On our Thursday, expect another warm day with high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. On Friday, we’ll still remain fairly warm. But a cold front will drop through the area during the day, shaving off a few degrees from our high temperatures. So, expect highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s Friday. As the front crosses the area, we’ll see a good deal of clouds and possibly a couple of isolated showers. This weekend, a few showers will be possible, but we’re certainly not expecting a washout. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Showers will likely linger into Monday.  Also, don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time begins!

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cool. Low temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.

Thursday: Sun and Clouds. Warm and Breezy.  High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Friday: Partly Sunny. Isolated Shower (20%). High temperatures near 70s. Winds: W 5-15 mph.
