A mainly dry and seasonable weekend is on tap with just the chance for a few flurries overnight into tomorrow morning. A big warm up then follows with temperatures well above normal by the middle of next week.
Sunshine this morning will fade behind increasing clouds this afternoon. Highs today will top out in the upper 30s to around 40s. A clipper system drops through the Great Lakes into the Mid-Atlantic. Overnight into Sunday morning, there is a chance a few of us could see some flurries.
Even though we will start out with clouds on Sunday morning we will begin to see skies clearing in the afternoon. Temperatures will rise to the low 40s on Sunday. High pressure builds in the Atlantic Ocean, surging warm air up the East Coast through most of next week.
We expect lots of sun on Monday and Tuesday, temperatures topping off in the low 50s and low 60s, respectively. By the time we get to Wednesday, we'll see potentially record-breaking warmth. We are forecasting a high of 68°, which would tie the current daily high record for Springfield, set back in 2002.
We are 15 days away from the start of Spring, but next week will give us an early look!
