Winter is not finished yet although it is Spring today!

This Afternoon: Sunshine and breezy

Temperatures: Upper 40s/ 50s | Wind: W 10-20+ mph

Overnight: Passing snow showers

Lows: Lower 30s | Wind: NW 5 - 10 mph

Thursday: Blustery

Highs: Around 40 | Wind Chill: 20s/30s

Finally! It is Spring, but hold your horses—it will LOOK like it outside this afternoon but may not feel like it. Our average temperature for this time of year is 57 degrees….it looks as if temperatures around the region will make it into the upper 40s/lower 50s to mid-50s in some spots but a BIG cool down will arrive tomorrow. A passing snow shower overnight may drop some minor accumulations on grassy areas but it shouldn’t pose a problem for the AM commute.




Breezy today (winds calm tonight but pick up again tomorrow)-- blustery tomorrow. Highs in only in the upper 30s/lower 40s for Thursday and with a chilly northwest wind, you better believe we will have wind chills. Forecasting wind chills in the 20s/30s for much of your Thursday. Back to temperatures in the upper 40s/lower 50s with sunshine on Friday and Saturday. Clouds increase on Sunday ahead of another potential snow maker for Sunday/Monday time frame.
