Sunshine and warmer…. Bundle up this morning. Many of our inland locations are at or below the freezing point this morning. We will warm up this afternoon with highs in the low 60s, near normal for this time of year. Expect plenty of sunshine and a slight breeze from the SW. Sunshine continues for Wednesday with highs climbing to the mid 70s. It will be windy tomorrow with SW winds at 10 to 20 mph and higher gusts possible. We will return to the mid 70s Thursday with clouds starting to build in ahead of an approaching cold front. The front will bring in rain overnight and into Friday morning. Highs will slip back into the 60s behind the cold front for Friday and the weekend. Rain chances will return for Easter Sunday and Monday.
