Tuesday's Weather: Mild and sunny first day of Spring. Highs in the mid to upper 60s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Spring will officially begin at 11:15 am Central Time today! The significance of the Spring Equinox is that today we will have nearly equal day and nighttime hours all across the world! If you want to celebrate the return of Spring outside, you are in luck. Though temperatures during the first half of the day may be on the cool side, this afternoon will warm up in a big way with sunshine. Highs will reach the mid to upper 60s this afternoon.

The first week of Spring will be a relatively calm one. Highs will be back in the 70s again Wednesday, until the weekend when temperatures will peak at 80 degrees for a few cities. Clouds return Friday and stick throughout the weekend. The weekend will also feature small rain chances. Overall, looking like a calm and warm week. Enjoy Spring!
