Spring forward!

Spring is scheduled to start right around lunchtime today.

It will certainly feel like spring in North Texas today and Friday, before cooling off a bit with a chance of showers for the weekend.

The spring, or vernal, equinox is scheduled for 11:57 a.m. today. Although the equinox is when the day and the night are both 12 hours long, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere actually occurred a few days ago.

The first day of summer will be June 21.

Today’s forecast from the National Weather Service is calling for sunny skies with a high near 70 and light winds and a low around 47 overnight.

It is expected to be partly sunny and windy Friday, with a high near 76 and south wind gusts as high as 25 mph.

A cold front is forecast to cross the region Friday night into Saturday, bringing with it high temperatures in the 50s and 60s and at least a slight chance of rain between Friday night and Sunday morning, with another shot at rain to start the work week Monday.
