Spring has sprung much earlier this year compared to last year. Today marks the third day this month with temperatures in the 70s. The warm weather is causing the grass and trees to begin to green sooner, believe it or not. The trees are starting to bud about 10 days earlier compared to last year.
Things are expected to change abruptly this week as a strong cold front arrives Tuesday evening. A round of steady rain followed by a breeze is expected tonight, with temperatures dropping into and staying in the 40s.
Wednesday looks downright chilly, with cloudy skies and a few sprinkles. High temperatures are likely going to stay in the 40s for most areas. A late day window of sunshine is possible, with clear skies and frost expected Wednesday night.
The weather rebounds on Thursday, with sunshine and highs in the mid 60s. Cooler weather returns on Friday with more rain. High temperatures over the weekend and early next week look to stay in the 50s.
