The start of the warming trend

Posted: Updated:

We hit 49° yesterday, which is typically our average low this time of year. Have no fear! Warmer temperatures are in the forecast starting today. The mercury will climb above 60 for the first time since Sunday and finally eclipse the 70° as early as Friday. The low to mid 70s take hold Easter weekend.

A few weak disturbances will send a few clouds our direction Thursday and Saturday. A strong disturbance brings a chance of rain into the forecast Sunday afternoon. The associated cold front will stall across the region and provide us a chance of rain through the first half of next week.
