Minor Setbacks But Spring Is Winning

Yesterday was in the mid 50s.  Then just when you thought winter was over…snowflakes flew through the air this morning.  Spring will continue to tease us over the coming days with another mild stretch this weekend followed by snow showers and cooler weather to start off next week.  But don’t get disappointed in these minor setbacks. While the first week of April will remain cooler than average, I see hope on the horizon.  The second week of April looks promising for our first 60+ degree days! But I’m getting ahead of myself.  First let’s get through the next week or so…

Widely scattered showers and sprinkles will diminish after sunset, followed by some clearing. Temps will stay in the 30s. Partly sunny skies on Friday morning will give way to increasing afternoon clouds and an isolated shower. With more sun than today, temps should be a few degrees milder, topping out in the low to mid 50s. 

Saturday looks fantastic with plenty of sun and temps in the low 50s.  Clouds will thicken up on Sunday with showers developing late in the day. We squeeze in one last mild day on Monday before an arctic comes crashing in.  Snow showers are possible Monday night into early Tuesday followed by a brief cool down early next week. But this one doesn’t last long. After two days in the mid to upper 40s, 50s return by Thursday of next week.
