Lots of sunshine today but temperature stayed on the cool side. Highs this afternoon max out in the lower to mid 30's, a good 10 degrees below average for this time of year. Winds were a bit lighter, from the north around 5 miles per hour.
Another chilly evening and overnight expected. The combination of mostly clear skies and light winds will cause temperatures to plummet once again. Teens for most but some areas to the north may once again flit with the single digits.
Another cold start for Saturday but more sunshine again to start the weekend and with a shift in the winds as that high pressure system moves out, we should warm up a few degrees more than Friday afternoon. Any snow that is still on the ground should melt thanks to the warmer conditions. We'll see more of a southerly flow helping to bring temperatures back into the low 40s. A great day to get out and enjoy some outdoor activities. Out of the weekend though, Saturday will be the more favorable day to go outside as a much more active pattern moves in to end the weekend.
Saturday night we could see some light snow as a cold front moves into the region. Accumulation will be minimal, less than an inch and anything that does fall (and stick) will not be around for long as rain mixes in by Sunday morning followed by a milder day with temperatures into the upper 40s to low 50s. It will not be a washout with some drier hours expected for the afternoon with maybe even a couple of peeks of sunshine.
The final few days of March will bring a warm up. Highs look to return to the 50s and even close to 60° next week, while a few more weather systems swing this way. April will be living up to it's nickname with several chances of showers to start the month. One quick moving system may slide through on Monday with a chance of showers (all rain) adding a little more precip to totals for March. The final day of the month should be dry as the next storm chance should hold off until the first day of April (Wednesday). The pattern does seem to be changing some so that we have a better chance to pick up some much needed moisture in the region. We will just have to see if it continues!
