PM Update: Glorious conditions continue
Warmth continues through Sunday before rain chance
Though we're still about 48 hours off the start of spring, on days like today it's easy to feel like we're well into the new season. Highs are topping out in the upper 60s to lower 70s across the area, and winds that have plagued the region for months on end are virtually nonexistent. The only negative is the increasing tree pollen count, which is now climbing back through the high category.
Through Tonight: More mostly clear skies are scheduled for tonight. As with the last few nights, we'll see a pretty sizeable drop in temperatures due to ideal cooling conditions of light winds and low humidity. Lows range from the mid-to-upper 30s in the suburbs to the low-and-mid 40s downtown.
Tomorrow (Friday): We'll bottle up today's leftovers and serve them up again tomorrow. Another warm and sunny one is on tap as highs rise near and past 70 most spots. Winds will be light from the west.
Repairing winter's damage: It won't be long until everything is green and blooming, but many backyard plants were damaged this winter by the several large snowstorms we faced. Adrian Higgins, Washington Post's gardening columnist, was online today to discuss everything from still-bent trees to injured Forsythia bushes that were previously crushed by the weight of heavy snow.
