TODAY: Windy and warm with heavy showers ending...windy, colder later

Temperatures: 50s/60s then falling| Wind: SW to NW 10-20+

TOMORROW: Parftly cloudy and pleasant.

Highs: 50s | Wind: SW 10

SUNDAY: Partly Cloudy, breezy and colder

Highs: 40s | Wind: W/NW 10-15 mph

Feeling like spring today with gusty winds and heavy showers.Temperatures this morning have been 15-20 degrees warmer than our normal afternoon high temperatures.Once the cold front passes through, you will see an abrupt change in the wind direction to the west and northwest. Skies will clear and temperatures will start to fall. In fact, I expect temperatures will be in the lower to middle 40s by late this afternoon.

Tomorrow is looking pretty good for outdoor activities. We are forecasting partly cloudy skies with highs in the 50s. it will become breezy during the afternoon. Sunday will be fine, as well...just a bit colder. Another cold front will cross the region later Sunday. A few flurries are possible by Sunday evening as temperatures tumble.
