It's as if winter has had a change of heart! After debuting last week with the solstice, the new season has offered up a recent run of exceptionally pleasant days. After hitting 61 on Christmas, yesterday's sunny skies, light winds and 51 degree high also carried a hint of spring. And with high pressure and southerly winds still in place, today will be an encore performance: look for mostly sunny skies and highs again in the low to mid 50s. But even with the days beginning to lengthen - albeit in small increments - our charmed weather lives are about to end. An approaching cold front should begin to cloud our skies this evening and moisture from the Gulf is likely to arrive by midday tomorrow. The threat of showers will linger into Monday as temperatures drop to near 40. The seasonable chill will stay in place into the New Year with daytime highs hovering in the upper 30s and low 40s. But with no snow expected in the near future, it seems that winter's heart still isn't quite into its role! Enjoy your weekend.
