Friday, February 28 Forecast Discussion

This morning has seen clouds and some light rain/sleet that worked through the area early this morning around sunrise. The bulk of the clouds have exited, but more clouds are off to the west and will arrive this evening with an upper level low quickly traversing the area. This low may touch off a shower or two, especially north of Interstate 20, otherwise we will remain dry through the day today.

Saturday, the first day of March, will be a nice one as we climb towards 70 with ample sunshine as high pressure takes hold for one more day. Sunday will also be warm as we could see highs in some locations head into the upper 70s before a cold front arrives.

The front will arrive during the overnight hours Sunday into Monday and should exit the area by 10am Monday morning. Showers will be the only thing with the front, although a thunderstorm is not impossible. Behind the front, much colder air will filter and temperatures will drop for most of the remainder of the day.

Tuesday will be a transition day between high pressure and a new area of low pressure that will begin to develop in the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday into Thursday. There are a lot of questions still with this system, so it is tough to give particulars this far out, but it looks like it will bring us some rain Wednesday and Thursday before we get cold for a day on Friday as the upper level low swings overhead.
