Spring-like temperatures will arrive for Chilton County on Thursday to mark the first full day of spring.

“We should start seeing more warm weather now that we are heading into the spring months,” said meteorologist Jessica Chace with the National Weather Service in Calera.

“There might be a few more cool days, but for the most part we will see temperatures warming up.”

Chace said temperatures for the remainder of the week should see highs in the upper 60s and some 70s with overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.

“Morning temperatures on Friday will start off cooler in the low 40s and 50s but should warm up throughout the day,” Chace said. “There is about a 20-30 percent chance of rain over the weekend, but temperatures will stay pretty warm for this time of year.”

Chace said the recorded high temperature taken in Chilton County for the first day of spring in 2013 was 61 degrees.
