Wednesday Evening March 14th – Rain Chances Sneaking Back In

Good Wednesday evening, everyone. Thanks to the south wind back in action and mostly sunny skies from start to finish, we had an overall nice and mild day. We got past our cold start in the middle 20s and saw afternoon highs rebound into the lower 60s today. The only caveat to the day was that we had a dry air mass in place. Factor that in with the south wind, we did have red flag warnings out to highlight the less than ideal conditions for any outdoor burning. We’ll try to improve on things as we have rain chances looking to return over the next several days. For tonight, we’ll keep the radar below quiet once again as skies stay mostly clear…

If you’re in need of rain from Mother Nature, it’s looking like rain chances will come back into play as soon as late Thursday night. Those chances will come from our next system that’s sitting in the western parts of the Rockies as of Wednesday evening…

Even though it’s still a ways out west, that front will be heading our way. Until it gets here, we’ll keep skies mostly clear tonight and most of your Thursday should be mostly sunny. It won’t be so cold to start your Thursday morning out. After we start in the lower to middle 40s, we’ll keep the south wind in play to take us into the middle 70s for Thursday afternoon. Once we get into late Thursday night and into Friday morning, that’s when the front out west starts working in…

Indications are that a good portion of Thursday evening will be on the quiet side with cloud cover increasing as we proceed through the night. By late Thursday night and into Friday morning, rain chances will work back in. Here’s how things could look at 2 AM Friday…

We’ll have rain chances stick around going into 5 AM Friday and for the start of the morning drive back to work/school…

Once we get past Friday morning, we’ll have our first shot of weekend rain move out and we’ll have partly to mostly sunny skies for your Friday afternoon…

Even though we’ll technically have a cold front work through, there won’t be much (if any) cold air behind it. That means we’ll have highs back in the lower to middle 70s for Friday afternoon…

Beyond Friday, we’ll stay quiet and mild for St. Patrick’s Day. For Sunday and going into Monday, that’s when our next wave of rain and t-storms will work through. Behind that wave, we’ll quiet down but start spring off on a cool note with 40s and 50s Tuesday and Wednesday. Don’t forget that Doug, as always, has your long-range forecast and latest thoughts on the pattern over at headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Thursday!
