Friday, March 15 Forecast Discussion

Even though it is still officially winter, it doesn't feel like it as everyone in the Twin States is at least at 70 degrees. A very warm weekend lies ahead with highs on Saturday pushing (and exceeding for a few locations) 80 degrees. Temperatures will be knocked down a degree or two on Sunday due to cloud cover, but temperatures will spike on Monday ahead of our next system.

While not being very potent, this system will have the potential to produce a few strong to severe storms Monday evening into Tuesday morning. The main threats are large hail and some gusty winds. With temperatures warming into the low 80s, I expect some storms to fire. They will not have much upper level support, so this will not be a severe weather outbreak, but we could see a few strong storms as we close out our Monday.

Rain will come to an end quickly behind the front leaving most of Tuesday dry as clouds clear. We welcome Spring on Wednesday with seasonal conditions before our next cold front arrives on Thursday with a few showers and maybe a storm. Timing with this front, being so far out, it tough at this point, but for now will go with it exiting Thursday evening and leaving us with a nice Friday.
