Late Sunday Evening March 13th Update – Starting the Work/School Week Off on a Nice Note

Good late Sunday evening, everyone. As advertised, it was another mostly cloudy day with rain and t-storms sticking around the area. We even had a few t-storms go severe out in Barry, Dade and Lawrence counties late this afternoon for large hail, but those didn’t last very long. We’re seeing the rain chances scoot off to our east on the radar below…

The rain chances are scooting out of here thanks to the changing weather setup. Below, we have the cold front that’s pushing east and causing severe storms out in Arkansas pushing into Mississippi and Tennessee tonight. That, along with the kicker low in the upper levels moving out, is taking our rain chances out of here…

For the rest of the overnight and into Monday morning, most spots will have to deal with areas of fog. Some of the fog could be dense at times with visibilities dropping to as low as a quarter of a mile. After the fog burns out by 10 AM, we’re mostly sunny for the rest of the day. After we start near 50°, afternoon highs Monday will top out near 75°…

We already have our next front on the way, but it stays out to our west tomorrow. You can see the front below as it was set up late Sunday night…

I don’t think this front has any moisture to work with, so I’m not expecting any rain chances with the front on Tuesday. It will start to cool us back down and we’ll feel that cool down as we go into Wednesday. We’ll see highs drop from near 70° Tuesday to about 60° on Wednesday…

Going into the upcoming weekend, I wouldn’t be surprised if we had highs drop back into the 40s thanks to another cool blast after St. Patrick’s Day Thursday. By Friday and Saturday, we’ll see another system south of us sneak rain chances our way…

Depending on how that system tracks, how it develops and how temperatures look, there is a slim chance a little bit of snow could mix in late Friday night and early Saturday morning. For Sunday, we should be dry with highs climbing back into the lower 50s. For all of the details on the long range forecast through the spring and what is to come, Doug has you covered over on headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Monday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

March 20th-26th:  Warm with thunderstorm chances to start the week.  Some of these could be on the strong to severe side.  Mild temperatures with showers sticking around into the middle of the week.  Cooling down and dry for the second half of the week.

March 27th- April 2nd:  Mainly a mild week with thunderstorms chances on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
