Mild weather returns this week as spring begins

With the official start of spring on Thursday, mild weather returns this week.

Clouds that will hang around into the night will keep night temps in the mid-30s, but temps will drop into the upper 20s where there is no cloud cover, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night.

St. Patrick's Day was cool but dry, and clouds gave way to some sunshine, Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini said, noting that temperatures climbed from about 20 degrees to the low to mid-40s. Breezes kept wind chills in the single digits.

A mix of sun and clouds Tuesday will keep the high temperature in the mid-50s. Clouds will increase through the evening.

Wednesday will feature off-and-on showers throughout the day, along with breezes especially in the afternoon that will keep the high near 50. A cold front is due later on Wednesday, but area temps should climb into the 50s before the front arrives.

For the first day of spring -- Thursday -- it will be mostly sunny with highs near the mid-50s.

Friday will be breezy with a high near 60 degrees. Simpson said it looks like showers will hold off at least until midnight.
