WINDY WEATHER: The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for midnight through noon on Sunday.   Tonight, after midnight, we’ll have have frequent 25-35 mph wind.  At times, we’ll have wind gusts over 40 mph.  The really windy weather continues until late Sunday afternoon.  Then, Sunday night, the winds relax.  We’ll have breezes, at 10-15 mph, on Monday and more windy weather on Wednesday.

COOLER WEATHER: We’ve got a temperature tug of war for the week ahead.  On Sunday, highs dip below average to the mid 40s.  Factor in the wind, and we’ve got wind chills in the upper 30s.  At least we’ll have some sun for most of the day to warm us up.  In the afternoon, clouds increase across the sky.  On Monday, we have more seasonal highs in the mid 50s.  Then, thanks to a cold front, we get highs in the mid 40s on Tuesday.  Though, we will have lots of sun on Tuesday.  Then, back up to the mid 50s on Wednesday and Thursday under clouds.  Next, our highs drop to the mid 40s on Friday and next Saturday.

WET WEATHER: Tonight, we’ll have a few sprinkles.  High spots in the mountains and ridges north and west of Harrisburg will even see a few flurries!  We’ll have a few showers arrive Sunday night, and they’ll linger through midday Monday.  Look for showers on Wednesday, and they’ll wrap up by midday Thursday.

CLIMATOLOGY NOTE: The March rainfall amount ran two inches below average.  So, the more rain we can get this week, the better.  Unless you don’t want to mow your lawn.  ; )  We already had mowers out where I live.
