It was crisp out there today, but bright sun and minimal wind helped highs near 50 feel decent. Definitely a sunny-side-of-the-street kind of day. The start of a warm-up is Friday. There’s a bump over the weekend, with cooler temperatures Sunday, but temperatures are mainly above to well above average through late next week.
