A Pleasant First Day Of Spring

Hello everyone!

For those excited about warmer weather, today marks the first day of astronomical spring, where the sun’s most direct rays are cast on the equator. The first day of spring also marks an interesting moment where everyone on earth sees (approximately) the same amount of daylight. No matter whether you’re at the North Pole, near the Equator, or somewhere in between, today will feature about 12 hours of daylight (give or take a little based on topography, refraction, etc.).

Enough about astronomy, what about today’s weather? It will be pretty quiet across the region. Look for sunny skies this morning shifting over to a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon. Temps will range from 35 in the mountains to 50 in the south. Along the immediate coast, a sea breeze will develop this afternoon and keep temps in the 40’s.
