TOMORROW

Cold front will swing through late morning and may produce a few stray showers. With temperatures starting so mild in the 40s, we should have no problem quickly warming to the mid and maybe a few upper 50s, especially once the sun breaks up after the passage of the front. Winds will be picking and become quite gusty out of the west-northwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts over 25mph. Skies will continue to clear as high pressure builds in towards evening and overnight. Winds will ease a bit but remain breezy.

OUTLOOK
Wednesday high pressure will be in control of our weather bringing a day of sunshine and cooler than average temperatures. There may still be a bit of a breeze adding to the chill. Highs will remain in the upper 30s to low 40s after morning lows in the 20s. Thursday, clouds will increase by afternoon as our next system starts to head east. Highs will remain in the 40s. For the arrival of spring, we could see a brief mix early Friday morning but a quick to rain showers as temps climb. The low moves away Friday evening. Highs will be stuck in the 40s. Saturday, we get a bump in temps as milder air surges in ahead of our next cold front which doesn’t cross the area until Saturday night. Clouds will remain for the start of the weekend and linger into Sunday morning before finally clearing the area. Temps could hit 50 Saturday but fall back to the 40s Sunday. Early next week, it starts out cooler than average but the pattern changes allowing milder more seasonal air to return.
