"Spring Forward"

It seems it came up rather quickly on us, but Daylight Saving Time begins early Sunday (2am CST/3am CDT), which means we set our clocks an hour ahead and lose an hour of sleep.
The good news?  More daylight!  The sun sets just after 6pm Saturday, and on Sunday it will set just after 7pm.  Spring begins in just 12 days!

We're seeing a warming trend in temperatures as well.  Starting on Sunday, temperatures will be in the 40s.  South of Interstate 80 where there is much less snow cover, temperature could easily reach the low 50s Sunday.  Much of the area will exceed 50° by Monday.  If we do reach 53°, it will be the warmest temperature since the 53° we climbed to back on December 4th, 2013.
We trend back to the 40s on Tuesday, which is near average.  Temperatures should average in the 40s for much of next week.  Here is the Climate Prediction Center's outlook for days 6-10, which is showing pretty typical temperatures for mid-March standards.
