Spring has sprung…for now

WARM START:  Hey spring!  We’ve been waiting for you!  Two days of warmth are here for the start of the work week.  Expect clouds to some sunshine on your Monday with highs in the low to middle 50s.  Tonight, we drop to the upper 30s.  Then even warmer air nudges in Tuesday ahead of our next system.  We’re talking high in the upper 50s!  It’s mostly cloudy and dry too.  Enjoy it!

MID-WEEK STORM:  A strong late winter storm is on deck for Wednesday, but for now it looks like we spend the vast majority of our time on the warm side of the system.  So, expect a cloudy and mild start to Wednesday with rain likely during the day.  The cold air then begins to race in on strong winds through the late afternoon and evening.  As temps fall, we will watch the rain change to snow into the overnight.  Right now, we’re expecting this to be mainly a rain event with low accumulations of snow at best.  Temps will drop to the low 20s overnight.  Wow.

We spend the majority of our time on the warm side of this storm, which means it’s mainly rain. We’ll end with some snow Wednesday night as the system races away.

LATE WEEK:  Thursday looks down right cold again.  Strong northwesterly winds and a cold air pass will hold highs near 30° as skies begin to clear for sunshine.  Thursday night, we’re in the teens for lows.  The cold air is short lived though, with moderation into the 40s by Friday with a relaxing breeze.

WEEKEND:  The milder air continues for the weekend.  A weak wave may bring a few light showers Saturday with drier weather for Sunday.  Highs Saturday are back into the low to middle 50s.  Sunday, we hit the low 50s.

Have an awesome Monday!
