OVERVIEW: A storm will deepen well off the coast and a cold front will swing through early tonight. Both features will continue to produce light snow for much of the area. Temperatures are cold and will continue well below average through tomorrow. Winds will become very gusty making temperatures feel even colder. A more spring like pattern with milder temps and rain showers will set up Friday into the weekend.
THIS EVENING: Light snow is likely and will continue but still not accumulate due to the high March sun angle. Temps in the low 30s will fall slowly to around 30.
OVERNIGHT: Snow should end before 11pm. Skies will be slow to clear. Lows will be cold in the low to mid 20s. Winds will start to pick up towards morning making wind chills feel more like the teens.
TOMORROW: It will not be feeling like spring at all. Plenty of sunshine once we get rid of morning clouds but it will do little to warm us. In fact, the winds will become quite strong out of the northwest 10-20 mph with gusts over 35mph. Highs will only warm to the middle 30’s but feel more like the 20’s with the winds.
SLOWLY WARMING: Thursday will feel much calmer with lighter winds and temperatures will be warmer in the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies. Clouds will be on the increase towards evening as the next frontal system moves closer to the area.
SPRING LIKE WEATHER RETURNS: It turns milder and we head to the 50’s starting Friday leading into the weekend. But with the warming trend come showers. Both Friday and Saturday will see a chance for rain. Highs Friday will be in the upper 50’s and a bit cooler in the mid 50’s for Saturday. Drier and more pleasant for the second half of the weekend with highs in the upper 50s Sunday.
STARING MILD NEXT WEEK: Heading back to work, we’ll see mostly sunny skies with much milder temperatures in the lower 60s for Monday. The next system quickly arrives Tuesday with showers and will knock temps back to the 50’s.
Have a great day!
