With the time changing, robins returning, daffodil shoots popping up, and milder air on tap this weekend, some real relief from our winter weariness is at hand!  Temperatures are already in the 50s across the area with some 60 degree readings likely by day's end.  A cold front is poised to pass through our area later today, but the consequences should not be all that dire.  Look for mostly cloudy skies overnight with a chance of showers as temperatures stay in the upper 30s.  The only snow showers likely to fall would be on the western slopes of the Appalachians.  Sunday is expected to start out cloudy, but skies should clear by afternoon.  With northwesterly winds around 10 mph, Sunday will likely be a slightly cooler day with highs in the upper 40s.

The beginning of next week looks quite comfortable with highs on Monday & Tuesday around 60.  A disturbance at midweek however will remind us that March can be a month for all seasons.  Showers, colder temperatures and perhaps a wintry mix are likely on Wednesday. Chillier than normal readings will last through the end of  the work week.  Still, any lingering wintry weather will be looking over its shoulder at all the spring time actors ready to take the stage.  Spring's official debut is March 20th.  Enjoy your weekend.
