As the start of the work week begins we will be dealing with cooler temperatures and those temperatures will only get colder as we head into the middle of the week. Temperatures for Monday and Tuesday will stay average or just above average before another round of arctic air makes its presence known in the South. The good news with this arctic air is it won't be as cold and it will be short lived.

Tuesday rain showers will linger across the viewing area ahead of the surface low that will drive in some colder arctic air. The front looks to be moving through our area Tuesday night, the clouds that have been infiltrating our region will also make an exit as soon as the front moves through. Behind the front breezy conditions as well as colder temperatures in the 40s for the high will make it's presence known.

As stated above, the good news with this arctic air, is that it will be short lived and quickly shift east come Thursday. The brunt of the arctic air will be felt Wednesday and into Wednesday night, where we will fall into the 20s. As Thursday arrives we will warm back up into the upper 40s lower 50s and the warming trend will continue on into the weekend where spring-like temperatures will make an appearance.

After the front moves through we will stay relatively dry, other than a slight disturbance that will move through Thursday night into Friday bringing us another shot of rain.

By Saturday, we will be back into the 60s making for a pleasant weekend. We are beginning to get into the Spring pattern of "zonal flow" where disturbances will quickly move in from the plains and exit rapidly. A disturbance will move through the plains around Sunday and increase our rain chances again into Sunday night.

Overall, once we get through with another round of short-lived bitterly cold, we will have a beautiful weekend in store for us.
