The week ahead...

Jason Samenow @ 1:15 AM

It's the first full week of spring, but it may not always feel like it.

Today will be springlike, despite the passage of the cold front that dropped hail across portions of the region yesterday late afternoon (see radar image to the right of yesterday's storm). Expect a mix of clouds and sun coupled with a northwesterly breeze, with highs in mid 50s.

On Tuesday, expect increasing clouds ahead of the next storm, with a high near 50. Tuesday night, rain will break out ahead of an area of low pressure to our west. With an area of high pressure to our north funneling down some cold air, it will be a cold rain -- with temperatures dropping into the mid and upper 30s.

Wednesday may well be pretty raw -- with a northeast wind and morning rain, followed by scattered showers in the afternoon. Temperatures may only reach the mid and upper 40s.

Conditions on Thursday should improve, with partial sunshine returning and highs in the mid 50s.

The way it looks now, there is another chance of rain on Friday, with temperatures in the 50s.

Average highs this time of year are in the upper 50s, with average lows near 40. It should be a bit cooler than average on the whole this week.

The return of Mark Mathis
A couple months ago, we showed you video highlights of weathercaster Mark Mathis, notorious for his unorthodox on-air demeanor. We reported that he had been fired by his station in Charlotte, North Carolina due to substance abuse. After a stint in rehab, a station in Grand Junction, Colorado has hired him according to the Charlotte Observer.
