Our streak of chilly days ended today. Highs in the low and mid-60s are above average, and the trees plus greenery undoubtedly took notice. Warm weather stays with us through tomorrow out ahead of a cold front. It’ll be much cloudier than today, and some showers may dot the region by afternoon. Cooler conditions are back for the weekend.
