By Norwalk Reflector staff • Mar 9, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Highs in the mid 40s are project today and Sunday.

Along with the mild temperatures comes windy conditions, along with some rain — possibly beginning this afternoon.

An approaching low pressure system will lift a warm front north into the area tonight.

Strong southeast winds gusting up to 40 mph are possible tonight.

A cold front will quickly sweep east early Sunday morning with winds gusting to 35 to 44 mph across the entire area Sunday. The strongest winds in the region will be focused across Northwest Ohio extending east along the lakeshore areas.

Don’t forget to move ahead your clocks one hour before going to bed tonight.

The official time change for Daylight Saving Time occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday.

Health and safety officials say it’s also a good time to test and replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
