Spring fever continues, record high will be set Thursday

Forecast

Cooler air on the way for the weekend...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Clear, Mild. Temperature Falling To 50 By 9p. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

OVERNIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Lo 35.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly Sunny, Warm! Hi 64. Winds: SE 5-15 mph.

Temperatures overachieved today especially across our southern tier where highs breached the upper 60s! Some thin cirrus clouds will remain overhead tonight, but it will remain mostly clear which will allow temperatures to fall into the mid to upper 30s by daybreak Wednesday.

Wednesday will be similar to today with highs topping out in the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. By Thursday, a stiff southwest breeze will deliver our warmest day of the year yet with highs expected to climb into the low to mid 70s! The record high for Thursday is 69 degrees set back in 1977, and it seems all but certain that we’ll break it. More clouds will move in Thursday night and Friday ahead of a cold front, which could bring us some showers for Friday but of spotty variety. The front will bring in cooler air this weekend but still near seasonable levels with highs around 50. It will be breezy, however.

Early next week will start off cool with highs in the 40s to near 50 degrees. A system emerging out of the rockies will try to throw some precip. out our way late Monday or early Tuesday. Until then, a mainly dry forecast continues.
