It was a chilly but dry afternoon with clouds filtering out the sun from time to time. We have one more seasonably cool day on the way to close out the weekend before milder air moves in for a good part of the upcoming week.
Expect mostly cloudy skies tonight as 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 but most of us will remain dry.
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 some sun on Monday and mostly sunny skies on 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!
