After months beleaguered by rain, spring, it seems, has sprung.

Saturday hit a high temperature of 69 degrees with a light northwest breeze and sun all day as a warm front moved in, according to the National Weather Service. The meteorological change brings pleasant weather for the many college graduations across the state.

The front will probably bring even warmer temperatures the next two days, near 74 Sunday and 81 Monday, but it could also bring storms as it collides with a cold front, weather service meteorologist Lenore Correia said. The normal high this time of year is 67, she said.
