Friday, March 7 Forecast Discussion

Skies have been clear to partly cloudy through the day today as high pressure to our south exerts its control over the area. The ample sunshine has warmed us to the low 60s and this is just a taste of what the next several days will be like!

Saturday and Sunday will see sunshine mixed with clouds, especially on Sunday, with highs topping out in the low 70s. A weak cold front will pass through the area on Sunday, but the trend has been less and less likely we will see a shower, so I have dropped rain chances to only 10 percent on Sunday.

Monday will start another small warm up as we reach the low to mid 70s heading into Tuesday. Outside of a stray shower Monday, we will remain dry. Tuesday is looking like our best chance to see rain as a cold front passes. Even with the front, right now it does not look like it will have the support to produce a lot of rain, but showers will be around.

Showers will continue to be possible on Wednesday ahead of an upper level low that looks to put an end to our warm spell. Highs on Wednesday will reach 70, but we won't even get out of the 50s on Thursday. Skies will clear for Thursday and Friday and we return to the 60s for next Friday.

Spring Break looks to be warm to start but cool to finish, so if you have any outdoor plans, you should be okay any day but Tuesday and Wednesday as those are our best chances at rain, and even then, those should be nothing more than scattered showers.
