Rowan weather: Sunny and … achoo!

Baby, it’s cold outside, but the sun is shining and we should hit 73 today, with some gusty winds up to 21 mph.
Tonight will be about 10 degrees warmer than our low of 35 degrees today, near 46, with clear skies.
Then we’re in for several days of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Make sure to wear sunscreen — it’s not summer yet, but the sun is strong.
Friday should be sunny and 77, with a low of 51; Saturday, repeat of Friday, but the low will be 53. Sunday, same thing, high of 77 and a low around 57, so there’s nothing to complain about but the pollen, which is blowing in the wind. The most active trees are maple, elm and birch, and the forecast is for high pollen through Sunday.
Monday will be mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers and a high near 75. You know what they say about rainy days and Mondays. The chance of rain goes up to 60 percent Monday night, with a low of 53.
Tuesday won’t be much of an improvement, with another 60 percent chance of rain and a high near 65. The rain chance decreases to 40 percent Monday night, with a low around 40.
Wednesday looks mostly sunny but cooler, with a high near 62.
