Missing Airliner

Frosty then warmer

After a couple of cold days…temps recover into the upper 50s/lower 50s behind the muscle of southerly winds. High temps in the 50s/60s will be the theme through the remainder of the week. Spring, albeit very slowly, is making its presence known across the area. Byron has the latest.

So enjoy your day, it's good to be back, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
