Colder air moves in behind Wednesday's storms. By Friday, temps will struggle in the low and mid 40s and a weak clipper system moving to our north will spark a few flurries and an isolated snow or rain shower.
Cherry Blossom Update: According to the National Park Service the buds are now in stage one. The earliest they could bloom is around March 13. If we have a cold March they could take an additional two weeks to bloom but if you are planning to have friends and family in Town for the peak bloom we think March 14 - 21 is a good week to schedule.
