Very Nice Saturday

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT: We'll be in the 50's again today (hit 51.2° on Friday) under a partly sunny sky. A slight chance for rain on Sunday with a high of 57°. Rain really ramps up on Sunday night with blustery winds. Rain again Monday with strong winds again. As the cold front passes through, we could see a period of snow on Monday night! The Spring Flood Outlook report is out and we have an average chance for Spring floods.

Daily Weather Story
The warm weather is the big story for your Saturday. After one of the coldest starts to a new year in recent memory, temperatures in the 50's are a welcome relief. Don't get too excited as we do see another cold wave coming in late Monday night and sticking around most of next week.
