The week ahead: Turn off the heat

March 12, 2012|By Scott Dance

A look at the week's weather forecast shows the up-and-down flirts with spring may be over. The warmth could threaten some records, but it won't be perfectly sunny every day.

Temperatures are expected to top 70 degrees for highs all week, and even reach near 80 degrees. Today should be the coolest of the week, in the mid- to upper-60s. Seventy-five degrees will be the norm for the rest of the week.

A day that warm would have come close to Sunday's record high of 75, but beating records gets tougher later in the week. High marks are in the mid- to low-80s. Depending on how hardy you are, it could be a nice week to sleep with the windows open. Lows will be in the mid-50s.

Rain chances come Monday night into Tuesday and return Friday and Saturday. blogger Elliot Abrams warns that end-of-week frontal system could "turn a would-be 70-degree day into a gray and dreary 45-degree embarrassment."

Enjoy the nice weather while you can.
