By Ian Livingston

Beautiful and 70+ Saturday/Sunday before rain threat

We wind down the work week on a spectacular note today as highs are now reaching the lower 70s across most of the area under mostly sunny skies. Fortunately for those who were good and stayed at work during all this great weather, it lasts through the weekend -- the first official one of spring. Highs will have little trouble getting to near or past 70 both days!

Through Tonight: Be on the lookout for a superb evening as temperatures fall into and through the 60s heading toward sunset. It will be another mostly clear and somewhat cool night with lows near 40 in the cold spots to around 50 in the warm ones.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Temperatures near 50 for the start of the National Marathon will quickly rise toward the mid-or-upper 60s by noon. Just a passing cloud or two will dot the sky during an otherwise glorious start to spring (arriving tomorrow at 1:32 p.m.). Afternoon highs reach the low-and-mid 70s across the area with light winds from the west and southwest.

First 'open window' night of the year for us! HooHaa!

I know its spring not by the calendar but because our front yard has literally thousands of digger bee mounds springing up. For the next couple of weeks, they will swarm and mate and then disappear. They appear to be perhaps the least threatening bee I have ever seen. We have walked, run and played in the yard, cut the grass, spread seed/fertilizer and never been stung. Harmless but still disconcerting nonetheless. Every expert seems to say they are actually beneficial. Hope so because I have no idea how to get rid of them.

Well, it looks like this weekend we're in for perfect weather...And I can't really argue with that.

How are we doing so far on March average temps? February was obviously well below normal.
