Conditions will be breezy with gusts up to 35 mph. South winds will turn west in the afternoon as a cold front moves in.

The cold air that slides in later Sunday sends temperatures plummeting to a level that’s a bit below the norm for this time of year, in the middle and upper 30s for Monday, but they will recover nicely by midweek.
Monday is the start of March and the beginning of meteorological spring. Astronomical spring arrives on Saturday, March 20.
