Sunnier, Milder This Weekend

By milder I DON'T mean temps in the 70s like last weekend. But Saturday and Sunday will feel milder compared to recent days (stuck in the 40s, ouch).

Any lingering clouds will give way to sunshine Saturday. A gusty northwest wind will allow temperatures to climb into the lower 60s statewide.  You may want to protect early season plants at night as temperatures drop close to the freezing point. Sunshine sticks around Sunday. But an easterly component to the wind will keep the shoreline cooler than inland areas. Monday and Tuesday are the mildest with rain late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Tonight: Not as cold. Low: mid-upper 30s.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, breezy. Northwest wind at 10 to 25 miles an hour. Milder. High temperatures in the lower 60s statewide.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High temperatures in the low 60s inland. The shoreline will remain cooler in the middle and upper 50s. Southeast wind at 5 to 10 miles an hour.

Monday: Mostly sunny. The slow warming trend continues. High temperatures in the lower to middle 60s.

Tuesday: Sunny start with increasing clouds late. High temperatures in the middle and upper 60s. Chance for showers at night.

Wednesday: Lingering morning showers. Otherwise, remaining cloudy and cooler. High temperatures in the middle to upper 50s.
