This weekend will be one to get out and finally enjoy some nicer, more typical early spring weather. High pressure will generally be in control, initially centered across the Upper Midwest, then sliding to our east tomorrow. This will eventually allow a southerly flow to become established, bringing warmer weather conditions to the region. With increasing sunshine today, temperatures will rise into the 40's this afternoon, and warm through the 50's tomorrow, likely making for the mildest day we've seen so far this year and spring season. Enjoy these nice conditions because unfortunately they won't be lasting.
The next developing storm system across the Plains will be sliding into the state late tomorrow night through Monday. The track has been shifting a bit further north in time, bringing high confidence this will be another rain event, with perhaps even the chance of a few embedded thunderstorms Monday. Once the system slides to the east cooler air will be drawn into the area dropping temperatures and possibly bringing a change over to some wet snow, which may linger into early Tuesday morning.
The pattern for the remainder of next week remains cooler with yet another potential storm impacting the region by Thursday with a rain/snow mix.
Have a great weekend and get outside to enjoy some sun and milder temperatures!
