The spring temperature roller coaster continues. More ups and downs in the extended forecast.

 This Afternoon:

Partly cloudy and seasonable; sprinkle possible early
Highs: 55-60 degrees
Wind: WSW 5-10 mph
Tonight:
Partly to mostly cloudy
Lows: 38-46 degrees
Wind: S 5 mph
Saturday:
Partly sunny, warm, and breezy. PM sprinkle possible
Highs: 65-70 degrees
Wind: W-NW 10-15 mph

After snow to start the work week, we end the week with more seasonal temperatures on this Friday and first full day of spring.  As a warm front lifts north of our area, expect some clouds and even an isolated sprinkle can't be ruled out. Overall, this Friday will be quite nice with more sunshine this afternoon and highs in the mid to upper 50s. 

Ahead of a cold front tomorrow, temperatures will warm into the upper 60s. The front should slide through dry, but again, a passing sprinkle isn't out of the question. Cooler air will filter in tomorrow night and highs Sunday will be near 50 degrees. A disturbance will track off the southeast coast Sunday and will bring clouds, as well as a slight chance for a few showers (especially east of town) with maybe a few wet snowflakes mixed in.

Cold temperatures will kick start the next work week with highs only in the lower 40s. Sunny and cold Monday followed by another storm system to watch Tuesday. Tuesday's coastal storm is trending east, which means less impact to our area. At this point, I'd say light snow showers are possible, but this does not look to be a major winter storm. However; with that being said, we'll have to keep a close eye on the development of the storm, since we all know what kind of winter we've had. Have a great weekend!
