Morning clouds, afternoon sunshine and highs near 60
OVERVIEW: A warm front swings through tonight bringing a return of the clouds. It will be followed by a weak cold front tomorrow. High pressure will be responsible for ushering cooler air for Sunday and a deepening trough over the east coast will bring below average temps through the middle of next week.
THIS EVENING: There were a few showers earlier in our southwest counties along with some clouds that rolled in, both associated with an approaching warm front and some mid level energy. The clouds are breaking up and it should be a delightful but breezy evening. Temperatures are quickly jumping as the sun shines bright. Temps will fall from the low 50s to the low to mid 40s this evening.
OVERNIGHT: Increasing clouds as we head towards Saturday morning. Lows will drop to the mid 30s.
TOMORROW: Late morning shower possible, clouds to start but as a cold front moves though, we’ll see more sunshine breaking through especially by afternoon. Winds will pick up out of the west 10 to 20 mph and that in combination with the sunshine will boost our temps to near 60 by afternoon.
BIG TEMPERATURE SWING: High pressure will funnel in colder air Sunday producing highs only in the low to mid 40s along with breezy conditions. There is a small chance for a few drops but most of the day will be dry with sunshine mixing in and out of the clouds.
NOT DONE WITH WINTER JUST YET: Temperatures turn colder next week as an upper level trough digs in across the eastern third of the country. Light snow showers will also be possible Tuesday into Wednesday as an area of low pressure rides up the coast. At this point, it will bring nothing more than light snow showers as the storm is too far off the coast to impact us more significantly. Even the little amount of snow we get, it will have a tough time sticking due to the fact it is late March and we have a higher sun angle. We’ll certainly keep an eye on the trends and any changes.
Have a great day!
