The first day of spring brings to mind ...

Warmer weather?

Meteorologist Greg Soulje said we might reach the average high (51 degrees) this afternoon with plenty of sunshine and a light wind.

"As for the spring season itself, many to most days may feature anything but a day like today. A cooler- to colder-than-normal temperature and wet (perhaps very wet) outlook highlights the pattern through May of this year.

"There's still some degree of winter left to be dealt with. A mention of snow is in the forecast for early next week and perhaps beyond."
