The rest of the week and the weekend ahead are looking beautiful with plenty of sunshine, warm air, and a few showers or a thunderstorm in the mix for good measure. Wednesday's temperatures have been topping out in the low to mid 60s despite a stiff, north breeze, but the wind will back off tonight and temperatures will rise back above average Thursday afternoon. We're in for clear skies overnight into Thursday morning and mostly sunny skies with a high close to 70 degrees Thursday. Even warmer air moves in to wrap up the week as highs make their way into the low 80s Friday afternoon, making the weather a bit more reminiscent of June than May. A north wind will drop temperatures a bit Saturday but this weekend is still going to be comfortably mild with highs around 70 degrees. I expect showers to affect us Friday night to early Saturday morning, but there won't be much, if any, activity during the daylight hours Saturday. Mother's Day weekend looks great for outdoor activities.

        The holidays are well behind us and the magic of wintertime seems to have faded, as the cold, windy days feel as if they are dragging on. But warmer months are not far into the future, and we're dreaming of sunshine.
