Cooler temperatures will continue through the first half of the weekend, but then temperatures will climb for the first day of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday.

Overnight: Clear and colder and still quite breezy

Lows: Upper 20s to lower 30s | Wind: NW 10-15 mph and gusty

Saturday: Mostly sunny and still a bit cool

Highs: Upper 40s to around 50 degrees | Wind: Becoming South 5 mph

Sunday: Mostly sunny and warmer

Highs: Lower 60s | Wind: S 5-10 mph

High pressure continues to build and expand across the region. The gusty winds are bringing in much drier air and the gusty winds will continue tonight. Lows will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s….and it’s a good thing the winds will stay up tonight. That’s because if the winds were calm, temperatures would drop to 20 degrees in places and that could cause some issues to newborn vegetation, but that will not be a problem. High pressure will be overhead tomorrow and the winds will be nearly calm. Highs will be rather chilly though, only in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. The high will move off shore later tomorrow and a steady warming trend will begin. Highs will climb through the 60s into the 70s. A few morning showers are possible on Tuesday and more showers are possible with the next cold front on Friday, March 16th. Otherwise a dry and pleasant period with the feeling of spring back in the air for the next 7 days.

Remember to turn clocks ahead 1 hour before going to bed tomorrow night…as we return to Daylight Saving Time early Sunday morning. Look below to see the sunset times for Saturday and Sunday.
