Warning: Spring fever very possible


“Spring fever advisories” and “happy warnings” are issued for communities from the southern Plains to the mid-Atlantic late in the week as warmer air builds.

Highs will climb 20 degrees higher than recent days in the mid-Atlantic by Friday, allowing people to get outdoors and enjoy the nice spring-like weather. Bright sunshine will compliment the warmth.

Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said that Philadelphia and Cincinnati may hit the 70-degree mark.

Highs will climb into the 60s and 70s across the Ohio Valley and the mid-Atlantic on Friday. This means highs will be about 10-20 degrees above normal.

The warm weather will arrive as a large dome of high pressure anchors itself off of the Southeast Coast. A southwesterly flow behind the high will bring the warmer air.

Across portions of the southern mid-Atlantic and the Southeast, highs will reach into the lower 80s.

A cold front will plunge southward across the Northeast on Saturday, trimming back at the warmth by 10-20 degrees.
