Despite filtered sunshine today, it was still mild with temperatures in the 50s. The breeze was making it feel a bit chillier but all in all a nice day to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
MUCH NEEDED RAIN
You will feel a change headed our way as a cold front swings through Tuesday morning. It looks as if we could pick up a half inch to three quarters of an inch of rain with some isolated areas picking up a bit more.
Right now the showers are still to our west and will arrive this evening spreading east overnight.
MILD ONE MORE DAY
A COLDER NORTHWEST FLOW
A cold northwest flow sets up again for Wednesday and Thursday. Jet stream dips to our south and the combination allows colder air to settle in across the area.There is a slight chance for a pop up shower Wednesday. Temperatures will run a bit below average both days with highs in the upper 40s midweek and low to mid 40s Thursday.
Friday into the following Monday looks a little complicated. Models disagree on how the pattern sets up. So for now it looks as if the upper level flow is quite fast as it flattens a bit. This means it allows disturbances to come in one after the other. Showers look possible Saturday with one system, then another quickly follows bringing showers late on Sunday. Highs will remain below average in the mid 40s. We’ll need to keep an eye on the forecast for those of you headed to the St. Patrick’s Day parades! You may need to keep the umbrella handy.
