A dry St. Patrick’s Day, but our luck won’t hold out for the weekend – Kris

There will not be any green on the radar on St. Patrick’s Day!  Expect mostly sunny skies to start Thursday. It will be a cool morning, with temperatures down around freezing.  However, we will warm up quickly into the mid 50s, which is about 5 degrees above average.  The clouds will be increasing the second half of the day as a weak disturbance approaches.   Expect mostly cloudy skies by tomorrow evening.
