Spring has officially arrived. We said goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring at 6:37 this morning with the sun crossing the equator and moving north bringing longer hours of day light and increasing warmth.

The weather forecast for the first few days of Spring is looking very spring like with sunshine predicted through Wednesday and high temperatures in the upper single or low double digits. Spring showers are in the forecast for the end of the week.
