Friday will be a blustery day with temps in the upper 40’s, windy and chilly.

Then spring begins on Saturday and weather life calms down to sunny skies and warm temperatures through mid-week next week. (Saturday in the low mid 50’s will be the coolest of those early spring days, the rest in the mid 60’s well above normal.)

Stay dry today and stay weather aware as the chance of a thunderstorm, or two, does exist this afternoon, (another sure sign of spring), and we will keep our eyes on the radar for you!
