Look for a cool, but sunny start to the weekend with highs today in the low to mid 50s.  Spring will be more emphatic tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 60s! 

This Afternoon: Mostly Sunny & Cool

Highs: 50-57 | Wind: N 5-10 mph

Tonight: Turning Mostly Cloudy, Seasonably Cool

Lows: 37-44 | Wind: SE 5-10 mph

Sunday: Partly Sunny & Milder, Quite Breezy

Highs: 64-68 | Wind: S 15-20 mph

After this spring of our discontent, the season we've been long awaiting is finally at hand!  Yesterday's 67 degrees and abundant sunshine almost made us forget the cold and bluster of these past weeks.  With high pressure overhead, today will still be sunny, but somewhat cooler with highs in the mid 50s.  But with winds turning to the south overnight, tomorrow should see the mercury rise to the upper 60s.  And even with more clouds than sunshine likely for much of the coming week, daytime highs in the 70s will finally warm our hearts and brighten our spirits!  If the daytime highs on Tuesday and Wednesday reach the upper 70s -  and they might -  they would be the warmest readings since way back on October 23rd when we hit 78 at Reagan National. 

Some April showers are possible late tomorrow evening and again on Thursday and Friday, but they will do little to dampen our long overdue cases of spring fever!  Enjoy your weekend.
