1. Beautiful day. Expect cloudless skies and highs near 70 today. This will be the first of a string of seasonably warm weather expected this week.

In case you missed it over the weekend, the Reading Memorial High School girls’ basketball team won the Division II North title with a hard-fought victory over defending champs Arlington Catholic on Saturday. The Lady Rockets will take on Scituate in the state semifinals on Tuesday at 6 a.m. at the TD Garden. Just like Saturday’s game, Patch will be there and readers will be able to follow the action on our live blog.
