Cannot wait for new, milder season to begin in two weeks at 5:37 a.m., Saturday, with the vernal equinox.

Saturday afternoon will be mostly sunny and chilly. In women’s college basketball, MSU hosts Wisconsin at 2 p.m., and Michigan hosts Northwestern at 3 p.m. Highs will be in the low 40s in the Motor City area and Southern Lower Michigan.
