Weather Blog

The above normal temps recorded today will once again be achieved Thursday, but possibly a few degrees cooler.  The winds will pick up once again, but nothing overwhelming, just noticeable gusts near 30 mph from time to time. Expect to see plenty of sunshine as well once more.

This pattern of mild weather will come to an end on Friday at the mercury in the thermometer will only rise into the low 50s. There will still be a good deal of sunshine and the winds will relax a bit. Not much is expected to change on Saturday as highs will once again be in the low 50s under sunny skies.

Sunday starts to see a gradual rise in the temperature profile, but still in the low 50s. A pleasant warm up is expected on Monday with highs near 60 and sunny skies. The warm up continues into Tuesday and Wednesday as a noticeable Spring Feel to the region arrives with temperatures in the middle 60s.

Enjoy the quiet pattern while we can since we all know the area rarely experiences persistent patterns of dry weather.
