    Milder air is moving into the state for the first day of spring, but unfortunately the more seasonable air only sticks around through Tuesday.

    Spring officially started at 6:29 a.m. today.

    We're forecasting high temperatures to reach the upper 40s throughout the state. Skies will be mostly sunny for most of the day with a few clouds moving in during the afternoon and evening.

    Temperatures will be a degree or two warmer for Wednesday with some locations reaching 50 degrees. 

    The mild air recedes by Wednesday and much cooler air is expected to work into the state. 

    We're forecasting temperatures Wednesday afternoon to only reach the middle 30s. Very cold air arrive by Thursday morning with many locations in the single digits. 

    The forecast over the next seven days is a bit of a roller coaster. Here's a look at the temperature trend.
