Spring is officially a month away today, but the flowers called snowdrops are more likely to appear this week than snowflakes. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday could see highs in the low 60s – marks more commonly found in early April. So much for Punxsatawney Phil’s Groundhog’s Day prediction of six more weeks of winter.
Today and Tuesday should have highs of about 50 – just above the low expected Thursday night. Normal for this time of year are lows in the upper 20s and highs in the mid 40s. The week also has a chance to be a damp one, with showers mentioned as a possibility – not a probability – Tuesday afternoon and night, Wednesday night, and Thursday into Friday. The best chance for rain is 50-50 Friday. The weekend should clear up but cool down, with more seasaonal highs in the mid 40s and lows near freezing in the city.
