Rowan weather: A warm, sunny day

You can tell there’s a warming trend, because the morning is starting at 34 degrees. Some outlying areas may have had some frost, but for the rest of us, it was just very damp.

The sunny skies will bring a warm high of 73 degrees, and it will be warmer tonight, too, with a low of 40.

Thursday will be sunny, too, with a high of 75. The low will be 50.

Friday looks a lot like Thursday, with sunny skies and a high near 76. A northeast breeze will develop in the afternoon. The low Friday will be 52.

Saturday will be nine degrees cooler, with a high of 65 and partly sunny skies. The low won’t drop far due to a cloudy night — 52 degrees.

There will be a 30 percent chance of rain on Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny with a high of 70. The low will be 54.

The new week brings more nice fall weather, with partly sunny skies Monday and a high of 67. The low will be 49.

Tuesday should be partly sunny again, with a cooler high of 62.
