We can’t say it’s been a long cold winter, but we sure do appreciate the fact that the sun and warm weather is here. Spring has officially arrived!

In our third week of March, we’ve enjoyed temperatures in the mid-70s and according to News 10/ABC’s Andy Gregorio, the incredible warm spell of weather will continue through Thursday with temperatures both day and night continuing to average out WAY ABOVE NORMAL along with record breaking temperatures expected for many locations through Thursday.

Here are some select records and normals:

According to Andy, the warm spell will come to an end Thursday night-Friday morning as a cold front will sweep across the area. This front is expected to come through dry. Over the weekend low pressure will approach the region with more clouds and a better chance for some wet weather too. The weekend will also be much cooler too due to the clouds, showers and a cool moist flow of air from off the Atlantic.
