After an overnight low close to freezing and following a Friday of cold temperatures and blustery wind, the Floyd County area can expect temperatures Saturday morning to rise at least 15 degrees between the 35 degrees of 6:15 a.m. and a forecasted 50 degrees at noon and then up some more to almost 60 by mid-afternoon.
Yes, Mother Nature is a flakey bitch this Spring.
The warm up continues Sunday with a projected high of 67 with lots of sun and then 73 on Monday and 77 Tuesday with highs elsewhere topping 80.
Time to crank up the lawn mowers and put new string in the edgers as grass keeps growing and lawn care time arrives.
Some rain possible on Wednesday of next week but highs are expected to stay in the 60s and 70s with lows well above freezing.
Good Friday next week is forecast to be mostly sunny with a high of 65 and an overnight low of 38 with an Easter Sunday in the 70s.
For those of us who favor transportation on two wheels, it will be a good week for riding.
Welcome to Spring.
