A cold start to Friday, of course, the term cold is relative, but given we haven't seen temperatures drop below the 20s in the last three weeks, this morning's teens will feel chilly. It is definitely coat weather this morning with some areas feeling like the single digits! Skies are clear and they will remain that way through the entire day.
Temperatures will be on the cool side all day despite plenty of sunshine. High pressure is sitting to our north keeping the sky clear and winds out of the north. Temperatures this afternoon will max out in the mid 30s, which is about 10 degrees below average. At least the winds will be lighter. Out of the north our winds will remain at just about 5 miles per hour. What a change from the last two days! Any snow that is still on the ground will be melting thanks to sunshine today and warmer temps this weekend.
Another cold start for Saturday with temperatures once again in the teens for overnight lows. But, more sunshine is ahead to start the weekend and with a shift in the winds as that high pressure system moves out, we should warm up. We'll see more of a southerly flow helping to bring temperatures back into the low 40s. Saturday will see mostly sunny skies and near average temps, so definitely a great day to spend some time outdoors. Out of the weekend, Saturday will be more favorable for outdoor activities 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!
