Spring and a "Super" Moon
Good Wednesday. Finally, we break the grip of a wet winter and welcome in the season of spring. The official start is 5:58 pm eastern. The first day of spring will be accompanied by a full, "super" moon tonight. The moon will be at its perigee (closest point to earth) today 3:47 eastern. That means it will look much bigger when you go out to look at it tonight. It will be in its full phase at 9:43 pm eastern. It is also sometimes called the "worm" moon because the ground is thawing, and earthworms start coming to the surface.
We are starting cold this morning in the low to mid-30s. This afternoon will be mostly sunny with a warm high of 63 degrees.
Thursday a front will bring in some rain showers during the morning. I would expect a wet commute. Rainfall amounts will be light (about 1/10"). Temps in the morning will be in the low 40s. Thursday afternoon will be cloudy with only a slight for a shower. The high will be in the low 60s.
Friday and Saturday look great. Lows will be in the upper 30s with highs in the low 60s. Sunday clouds move in, but the high will make it all the way to 70 degrees. More rain showers will head our way to start off next week.
