Friday's balmy weather is forecast to turn to rain and snow by Saturday morning when a cold front sweeps in from the Great Lakes. We hit the low 40s this afternoon and slowly start to see skies clear. More relief arrives Sunday, when temperatures reach into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies.

High pressure will build in behind the front rushing in colder temperatures tonight. Lows will be near freezing for many of us, with some of our northern counties dropping below 30 with all of the radiational cooling taking place. Staying dry through much of the day but some outbreaks of rain are possible by the evening.

"At this point a year ago, there was much more spring going on", he said, adding that temperatures continue rising a degree or so each day.

Monday: Cloudy with scattered very light snow or flurries. In any case, a front will slide through Wednesday afternoon or evening, bringing a moderate chance of some rain showers.

Eye on China, India pushes rail links with Nepal
The Nepal-China agreements came at a time when Kathmandu-New Delhi ties started soaring after a border blockade in 2015-16. The Nepalese prime minister further said that his country wishes to walk together with both of its big neighbours.

Tomorrow: A rather breezy and gloomy day is in store for us tomorrow with a high of 49 degrees.

By Sunday afternoon, temperatures will warm into the upper 30s to mid 40s. Temperatures will moderate closer to near seasonable temperatures in the low 50s. Avery sees temperatures getting down to the low 30s, and Buccola says it could dip down into the 20s. Joining the Late Models on the program both nights will be the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds and Big O Tires Street Stocks with full shows both nights.

Spring was finally in the air earlier in the week throughout the region.

The extra moisture has also led us to a cooler start to the warm weather season.
