Major warm-up on the horizon!
Good evening! Well it’s wonderful to see the sunshine, and our winds have lightening dramatically since earlier today. We have one more unseasonable cold night tonight, before we see some major changes on the horizon. Highs today were in the mid to upper-30s for most, and by the end of this 7-day are lows are in the mid to low-50s (twenty degrees higher than today’s highs). High temperatures tomorrow are near average, but still a little chilly in the upper-40s and low-50s. A light spotty wintry mix is possible tomorrow mainly north and west of the metro. Light rain showers are possible tomorrow evening and night for the metro. Temperatures are back to about 62° for highs on Saturday, with breezy southeasterly winds. Your Easter Sunday forecast features highs in the mid-60s with some spotty rain showers possible (not a washout by any means). Plan on a lot of melt this weekend into next week!
Have a wonderful night!
