A cold front will swing through Sunday afternoon brining more rain showers. Temperatures will warm to near seasonal averages today, then reach into the 60s on Saturday and into the 70s for Sunday before the cold front arrives.

About Today’s Photo:
Coldfoot is one of the very first wildflowers to bloom in the spring. This ubiquitous flower grows along roadways and in disturbed soils, and is actually native to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. It was likely introduced to North America by settlers as it has certain medicinal properties.
