A light glaze of ice possible on sidewalk, decks and windshields in the Advisory area west…

Spotty light rain and drizzle for this last day of winter and in spots west of the city where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 11am for a light glaze of ice. Most likely slick spots include walks, driveways and even your car. Temperatures will only climb into the low 40s again this afternoon with a better shot for some showers later in the day as a warm front lifts through. By Thursday, the start of astronomical spring, skies should clear giving way to a mild afternoon with highs approaching 60º. The warm streak will carry into the start of the weekend, but all indications point to another cold push by Sunday. So despite a change in the season, we still have not seen that all important change in our weather pattern. Be safe and have a great day!

With the start of Spring comes the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. But with all of the cold and snow will the blossoms bloom in time?  Jacqui Jeras explores this in her latest blog.
