Friday, March 21 Forecast Discussion

High clouds have been filtering in this afternoon and will keep arriving overnight and thicken up ahead of our next cold front that will work through the area late on Saturday. Even with the clouds, temperatures are already in the lower 70s, and we should have no problems making it to the mid and even some upper 70s by the end of the day today and for our Saturday.

Rain showers look to hold off for the most part until closer to midnight on Sunday, but a stray shower through the afternoon is possible on Saturday. As rain falls on Sunday, cooler air will be approaching from the north and drop temperatures through the most part of the day. Our high temperature will occur early in the morning with temperatures dropping into the 50s and holding there for most of the day.

Rain should end for the most part by noon on Sunday with just some lingering showers for Sunday afternoon and Monday. Temperatures will be a lot cooler on Monday with highs in the low 60s and lows in the upper 30s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will see cold readings as highs will struggle to 60 on Tuesday and should remain in the mid and upper 50s on Wednesday. Of concern will be Wednesday morning where lows could get to or dip below freezing for a couple of hours. Any sensitive plants will need to be covered or brought inside Tuesday night.

We start to rebound on Thursday as highs return to the middle 60s as a small rain chance returns ahead of our next cold front on Friday which will bring our next chance at rain as highs climb back to the low 70s.
