Forecast discussion…

This morning’s lows were still way below normal with the upper Piedra reporting -3 degrees and most of the town dropped to the single digits. The cold air will slowly start modifying over the next couple of days and we should finally reach normal temperatures by this weekend. High pressure will be in control as the ridge sits over our area. Look for mostly sunny skies for at least the next 5 days and yes, it will start feeling like spring! With temperatures reaching the 60’s by next week, we could see some rising rivers…we will keep tabs on that as the days go by.
