Sunny: Sure feels like spring already — the JohnstonPatch WeatherBug forecast is calling for sun and highs in the 60s. Overnight lows in the 40s with a chance of snow — JUST KIDDING. Tomorrow's forecast is pretty much the same as today's.

Savings: Quick — name two pieces of information you'd like to know before you head out of the house today. How about where's the cheapest gas nearby, and whether there are any traffic problems on your route? We've got you covered — click here for our Traffic & Gas page.
