Spring got a cold start, but the sun is coming out today and it’s warming up.
The high today will reach 77 degrees under mostly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. A wind advisory begins at noon and lasts until about 1 a.m., with wind gusts reaching as high as 40 mph.
“We advise people to exercise a little bit of extra caution, especially on east and west roads,” especially those in high profile or lightweight vehicles, said Jesse Moore, NWS meteorologist.
The overnight low will dip to 62 degrees, and it will stay windy through the night into Wednesday, when temperatures are expected to reach near 85 degress, according to the NWS.
Moore said the next chance for precipitation will be Wednesday, when a cold front moves through and the chance for showers and thunderstorms will go up to 20 percent.
The front will cool temperatures to the 60s and 70s for the rest of the week, until the next chance of rain Saturday, Moore said.
“We’ve had much worse both ways as far as weather in March is concerned,” Moore said. “Its been colder and hotter. We have been as high 93 degrees on today.”
