Temperatures are rising and we have a big preview of spring into early next week!
A mix of clouds and sun throughout the afternoon. A front to the west will be pushing this way, while temperatures climb through the 20s and top out around the freezing mark. The front could fire up a couple of snow showers tonight but accumulation will be minimal. The extra cloud cover overnight (in combination with southerly winds) will help keep temperatures much milder, staying in the 20s!
A decent start to this first weekend of March, with seasonable temperatures expected. We should see clouds and at least a bit of sunshine tomorrow, with seasonable highs in the mid 30s. A clipper system will slide to our north Saturday night into early Sunday, with perhaps a snow shower or two in the morning, but the remainder of the day should be drier, brighter and warmer. Temperatures will reach into the upper 30s Sunday leading to more slow melting.
The big weather story going into next week will be the well deserved warm up. The pattern will be changing, with the coldest air retreating north into Canada and a more zonal or west to east flow developing across the U.S. This will allow us to continue to see a temperature rise, with above average readings into next week. It will also be a quiet stretch, with no real precipitation chances through next Thursday at this point.
Monday will bring a mix of clouds and sun, with highs in the lower 40s, but with a broad southwest flow continuing, temperatures will warm further, well into the 40s and possibly low 50s by the middle of next week. These milder readings will certainly melt the snow and ice away in the coming days, while giving all of us a little spring preview.
