It’s also only five days away from the Spring equinox, March 20.

Temperatures will drop to around 21 degrees tonight with an east wind of 7 to 13 mph.

Friday and Saturday’s forecasts include chances of rain and snow.

According to “National Shoe The World Day is a day created to bring awareness, to everyone across the nation, of the incredible need to help those people around the world that do not have shoes to wear and then to take action in helping. Use #NationalShoeTheWorldDay to post on social media.”

According to, “There are two equinoxes every year – in March and September – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of night and day are nearly equal.”
