Under partly cloudy skies we can expect highs in the mid-40s.

As a warm front moves through the region tonight there is the potential for some light rain showers or wintry mix.

Any precipitation is expected to be very light and brief.

The first full day of spring brings a pleasant warm up.

Breezy southerly winds will help push temps into the mid-50s Friday afternoon.

This comes ahead of a cold front that will drop temps for the weekend.
