Spring break has indeed brought with it spring-like temperatures.

Coweta County can expect high temperatures in the next couple of days near 70 degrees with slight chances of showers and lows near 40.

For today, the National Weather Service says a 40 percent chance of showers is in the forecast early, then conditions will become partly sunny with a high near 70 degrees. A light west wind will switch to the northwest later in the day at 10 to 15 mph.

Tonight, mostly clear skies will deliver a low of 39 with northwest wind at 5 mph.

On Tuesday, mostly sunny conditions are forecast with a high near 67 degrees. A 20 percent chance of showers are expected after midnight on Tuesday evening with a low of 45.

One thing Coweta residents should keep an eye on is the Pollen Count. The Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic website is indicating a pollen count in the high range today at 179. Pollens present include cedar, oak, sycamore and willow trees. On Sunday, the count reached 192, the highest mark since March 18.

Pollen count numbers will likely continue to rise and stay in the 'high' range as the temperatures stay near 70.
