The forecast is looking fantastic after today! If you’ve missed warm temps and sunshine, you’re in for a treat! I fully expect many of us to hit the 80-degree mark Tuesday and maybe even Wednesday. That will feel nice!
A new storm system may approach by the end of the week, but guidance is very unclear as to how that will play out. I’ll keep an eye on it.
