It was a pleasant afternoon to close out the weekend. We managed to see a good deal of sunshine and temperatures rose into the lower 40s, which is right where we should be this time of year. Now get ready for a taste of Spring through the middle of the week.
A area of high pressure is pushing off the coast to our south, which means a southerly flow of air starting tonight. That will help to bring in the milder temperatures as we head into tomorrow. Skies remain mostly clear tonight with temperatures dropping back into the lower 20s.
We start off with some sun tomorrow morning but clouds will filter out the sun as we head into the afternoon. A stalled out front to the north will try to push its way into the region but it will not make it very far. There is just the slight chance for a shower tomorrow afternoon, mainly in Franklin county. Highs tomorrow top off in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
We expect mostly sunny skies on Tuesday with temperatures topping off in the upper 50s and low 60s. 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 14 days away from the start of Spring, but the next few days will give us an early look!
