Warmer weekend on the way, t-storms next week!

After a long week of cold weather and winter weather issues, a lot  of you are looking for a good weekend.  We’re certainly moving in the right direction.  An area of high pressure up to our north will start bringing in warmer air by the weekend, and with a ridge of high pressure developing on top of us in the upper layers of the atmosphere, we are trending toward a warmer weekend.  That warm air looks to linger into at least a part of next week.

Expect some clouds at times Saturday but we will stay rainfree. Expect daytime highs in the lower 50s for most of us.  A few our our north counties may stay in the upper 40s as the snow continues to melt.  We’ll introduce a risk of a few showers or sprinkles or Sunday, but it will not be a wash out, although we’ll see a good deal of clouds.  Expect daytime highs in the low to mid 50s.
it will feel almost like a heat wave come Monday with many temperatures by afternoon rising to the lower 60s.  With the warmer weather, we’ll continue to mention a risk of rain and perhaps a thunderstorms.  Our greatest chances of thunderstorms looks to come Tuesday and Wednesday with slow-moving cold front moving across the area.  We’ll need to monitor this time period closely as our weather guidance suggests there could be a few strong storms around.   Keep in mind, March begins this Sunday and is usually the beginning or our spring “severe weather season.”
And, just as quickly as warmer weather moved in, we’ll see another change to cold weather next Thursday and Friday.  There’s even some chance late Wednesday into early Thursday morning, as the precipitation begins lifting out and the colder air moves in, we could see some wintry weather again.  Stay tuned!
