LATE WEEK QUESTIONS:  We’re watching a wide variety of solutions for the end of the week, form sunshine and mild air, to colder weather with rain or snow.  Right now, we’re holding a mainly cloudy day with the chance for a mix to rain showers on Friday.  Highs are in the middle 40s.  This forecast is highly uncertain and changeable, so check back.

WEEKEND:  The late week forecast will impact the weekend plans, but for now we’re looking at a mostly cloudy Saturday with highs nearing 50°.  Sunday, we’re back to the middle 40s under partly cloudy skies.  More to come.

SPRING EQUINOX: Friday marks the start of spring.  At 6:45PM EDT, the sun’s direct rays will sit directly over the equator.  For the next six months, we’ll see the sun’s most direct rays in the northern hemisphere.
