After this morning... the heat is on!

I know it still feels cold this morning, but by afternoon we'll be back to May!

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

One last day of near-frosty conditions this morning, and then we might as well close the book on winter (or winter-type thoughts). A good benchmark test on your susceptability to frost is that if you frosted over Monday morning, then you may also be at risk this morning. Otherwise, you should be in the clear. Check the maps below for our frost threat:

Following almost immediately with the sunrise, we'll be under the influence of warm southwesterly winds. Expect temperatures to move more than 30-degrees from morning to afternoon.

Highs today reach the 70s, tomorrow the 80s-- and we'll look to stay there for the rest of the week. When that front lifts northward, pushed along by the southwesterly flow, there'll be a time of cloud cover but it's expected that we'll stay dry and still spend most of the day with pleasant skies.

Looking ahead to the end of the week, specifically starting on Thursday, we'll see a return of the showers. This will continue in and out of the region for another few days, and we'll throw some thunder in there too. Here's a look at what kind of rain we'll be seeing:

More good watering for the plants, when it gets here.
