Monday Evening March 19th – Spring Starting on a Chilly Note

Good Monday evening, everyone. As expected, it was quite the chilly day across the area. We had morning rain and t-storms across the area, but we’ve backed off to just some scattered showers as we head into the rest of the evening. Temperatures didn’t really warm up all that much today. We had lows starting around 50° this morning and we could only make a run into the upper 50s to near 60° by lunch time. Throughout the afternoon, the north breeze kicked back in and knocked us back into the cool territory this evening. At least we’re not dealing with any t-storms on the radar below…

For the rest of the evening and heading into Tuesday morning, we’ll hold onto the clouds and some scattered showers. It will be a cold start to the morning, though. Plan on having a good jacket handy as lows will start in the upper 30s…

After the morning drive, there could be a few afternoon showers trying to stick around. For most spots, the afternoon is looking mostly cloudy…

Despite the mostly cloudy skies and a northwest breeze, we should be able to warm up a bit. Funny how it’ll be the first day of spring Tuesday, but it won’t feel like it. Highs will only go into the lower 50s…

Even though the season starts chilly, it won’t stay chilly all week. We’ll have mostly sunny skies set for Wednesday. With a south breeze returning on Wednesday, we’ll have highs climb into the upper 50s. Thursday doesn’t look too shabby, either. With partly sunny skies and a good south breeze in play, we’ll have highs pushing close to 70° Thursday afternoon…

We’ll stay mild going into the coming weekend, but we’ll also have rain chances trying to return. The culprit? Our next system with its projected setup by 7 AM Saturday right below…

That means we could have a few showers possible Friday, Saturday and maybe a bit of a better shot come Sunday…

Beyond the weekend, early indications are that the new work/school week will start on the chilly side on Monday. Don’t forget that Doug has your long-range forecast and his latest thoughts on the pattern covered over at headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Tuesday!
