Monday Evening March 12th – Warming Trend Set for the Rest of the Week

Good Monday evening, everyone. Thanks to the clouds that were stubborn to move on out of the area, most spots stayed on the cool side today. For some of you, you did see the sun return as the clouds broke apart. That resulted in some middle to upper 40s (a few spots close to 50°) on the KS side. The clouds moved out for the rest of the area to start the evening out with nothing popping up on the radar below…

Even though it was nice to see the sun late this afternoon and mostly clear skies to start the evening out, we’ll have another weak upper level wave sneak in from the northwest. It shouldn’t bring any rain into the area, but that will bring another round of clouds overnight and into Tuesday morning…

Plan on starting the day with clouds and lows in the upper 20s to near 30°. It won’t be cold and cloudy all day, though. By lunchtime, we’re expecting mostly sunny skies to take us through the rest of the afternoon. Despite the north breeze for Tuesday, it’ll be a light breeze. That should allow highs to top out around 50° for your Tuesday afternoon…

Going into Wednesday, we’ll have high pressure at the surface develop over Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. That will get the south and southwest breeze back in here and allow us to continue our warming trend. With this setup, plan on highs pushing into the middle to upper 50s Wednesday…

We’ll keep going on Thursday. After starting in the lower 40s Thursday morning, we’ll have highs soar into the middle to upper 60s…

Seeing Thursday’s map above during the afternoon, you can pick out just by looking at the wind barbs that we’ll have our next system working in from the west. We’re also seeing that unfold in the upper levels of the atmosphere by Friday morning. We’ll still have a vigorous upper level low out in the Pacific Northwest, but it will send a system our way…

That means rain chances will be back into the picture for Friday…

Despite some rain chances for Friday and St. Patrick’s Day, we’re looking to stay on the mild side with highs ranging from the middle 60s to about 70°. By Sunday, we’ll have another shot for some rain and even some t-storms…

Despite the t-storm chances Sunday, a good south breeze should push us into the middle to upper 70s for highs. Going into the new work/school week, we’ll stay dry and mild for Monday with highs in the lower 70s. 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 Tuesday!
