Wednesday’s forecast: First day of spring should be a warm one

PHOENIX – It should be a beautiful first day of spring Wednesday as temperatures in metro Phoenix jump above average into the low 80s.

Our average high temperatures for this time of year are in the mid- to upper-70s, but it has been an atypical winter of above average rain and below average temperatures.

The chance for rain Wednesday evening and into Thursday sits at about 30 percent, but for the majority of the state, the next seven days should remain dry.

And be sure to check out the “super equinox moon” Tuesday night – the third and last supermoon of 2019. A supermoon is a full or nearly full moon that coincides with lunar perigee, the point in the moon’s elliptical orbit when it’s nearest the Earth. Instead of 238,000 miles from our planet, the moon will be 226,000 miles away, making it appear percent 30 percent brighter and up to 14 percent bigger.
