Highs could hit the 60s on Saturday

After a cold couple of days our temperatures will start trending warmer to finish this week.

Expect plenty of sunshine today with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s across the Northland. A south breeze will pick up on Friday helping our temperatures warm into the lower to mid 50s over the area. Wind gusts look to peak in the upper teens to lower 20s throughout the day tomorrow. I'm calling Saturday the pick day of this forecast. Sunny sky with lighter winds and highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s will make for a very pleasant early April day.
