It seems no matter who you talk with, everyone says there will always
be a cold snap before Easter. Well, our snap is upon us. The changes will start
on Friday as winds will be picking up during the day and highs will only be in

not make it to 60. Low-to-mid 30s for Saturday night will be some of the
coldest temperatures for this time of the year. A slow warming trend will then
set in on Monday. Just remember that if you have plants out, you may want to
make sure they are covered as some areas could see frost this weekend.
