This is the Spring like temperature spike we have been waiting for in the Capital Region!

The official first day of Spring is next Wednesday, March 20th, but this Thursday may be the unofficial start here in the Capital Region based on the temperature outside!

According to the Weather Channel, high temps will soar into the Mid 50's on Thursday and we will see a high of 62 on Friday! Unfortunately the warm temps on Friday will also come with rain, but we'll take it right? Some warm weather and some rain will be a welcome Spring site to help wash away the snow that has been lingering on the ground.

Looking even further ahead to the weekend, your St. Patrick's Day Weekend forecast is looking pretty good too. Although it will cool off back to the 40's with clouds on Saturday, St. Patrick's Day Sunday is looking solid with Sun and a high of 40.

Maybe your sad winter is slipping away, but it was a good one right? I say bring the Spring temps and let's get ready for Summer!
