Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

We're 32 days away from the first day of Spring, but we're not going to have to wait much longer to start feeling spring-like. Highs in the 60s and 70s on the way, along with when you'll need to break out the umbrella.

A nice warm up today. Winds will turn to the south and usher in much warmer air. Expect highs in the low 60s.

It's about to get windy! A strong cold front will approach on Thursday and winds will pick up out of the south ahead of the front. Wind gusts up to 30 mph will be possible. The southerly wind will help to boost our temperatures to the low 70s. This is well-above normal for this time of year. Rain will move in late. Showers will continue overnight and into the first half of the day Friday. Temperatures will start out in the 60s Friday morning, and fall as the day progresses and the cold front moves through. Expect temperatures in the 40s by the afternoon.
