Today is the first day of Spring.  It is the vernal equinox, one of two times per year that the amount of daytime and nighttime are equal.  The other occurs in fall, or the autumnal equinox.  High temperatures in the 80’s have made it feel more like summer for the last several days in Rome and Northwest Georgia, and they’re expected to continue.  Forecasters call for sunny skies for this first day of spring with a high in the mid 80s.
