STEADY. As the near term forecast goes, rain holds off until Monday and early next week may be wet, but nothing heavy as of right now. Looking out a week, temperatures remain stable in the upper sixties and low seventies for highs as spring makes up for lost time. Watch for buds to break with the warmth and some wind in the coming days as well.
