Monday, March 24 Forecast Discussion

Plenty of sunshine has been the story of the day for our Monday as temperatures are climbing into the middle 60s. We will keep the clear skies overnight which will allow us to drop near freezing. There will be some frost tonight, but the winds staying up a bit should limit us from reaching the freezing mark aside from normally cooler locations north of Interstate 20.

Tuesday will be a windy day as a dry cold front passes with winds sustained between 10 and 20 mph throughout the day from the northwest. Because of the winds, highs will struggle to return to 60 tomorrow, with locations north of Interstate 20 perhaps staying only in the upper 50s.

The day we are watching closely is Wednesday as we will start off the day with temperatures in the upper 20s for locations along and north of Interstate 20 and near freezing near Highway 84. You will want to bring in any sensitive vegetation and protect any sensitive plants that are already in the ground. The good news is the cold mornings are short lived as we will return to the 40s for lows by Thursday morning and 50s for lows by Friday morning.

Rain returns Thursday and Friday as a system works through, but it is tough to say at this point if it will be an all day rain or just showers, but I am leaning to showers for now as we work through the latter portion of the week.

The final weekend of March looks fantastic as highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 with mostly sunny skies after Saturday morning and highs at 80 to close out March.
