Well, maybe partly cloudy would be a better description, and really warm. Stateline broke a record for high temperature on Wednesday and is expected to crack it today. In the Valley, I doubt we’re forecast to hit 75 degrees, which is well short of the 80-degree record set in 2007. On Wednesday, my car said it was 81 out, which doesn’t break the record of 83 for March 13, but could indicate we’re in for warmer than forecast temps today.
