The weather, currently.

Much milder than average conditions continue

Temperatures will continue above average the rest of the week with an especially mild day coming in for Friday. There's a little weak weather system that will arrive Tuesday afternoon and early evening with more cloudiness and just the chance for a shower. You should expect afternoon readings in the mid to upper 50s for Tuesday and right around 60 by Wednesday with more sunshine. Another system brings more cloudiness Thursday with the chance for a couple of showers. Any showers will end Thursday night and then Friday we should see temperatures right around 70°F. Rain starts the weekend but Sunshine should finish. —Dave Epstein

What you need to know, currently.

The United States and Canada “sprung ahead”— gaining an extra hour of sunlight in the evening but losing an hour of sleep— when daylight saving time arrived this weekend.

There are mixed feelings about daylight saving across the board— there is excitement about the extra post-work daylight, there are early birds who dislike the darker mornings, and more general negative feelings about changing the clocks altogether.

Experts argue that moving the clocks back and forth each year is bad for public health and safety— disrupting sleep patterns, affecting mental health, and increasing car accidents.

Whatever your feelings for daylight saving are, it is certainly a sign that spring is really on its way. What are you doing with your extra hour of daylight? Let us know by replying or quote tweeting this tweet, using the hashtag #CurrentlySpring.
