Thursday, March 13 Forecast Discussion

Full sunshine has been the story of the day today as high pressure is firmly in control. It will slide off to our east overnight and turn our winds from the southwest for Friday, pumping in warmer air and also more moisture as clouds will arrive through the afternoon. Even as clouds increase, temperatures should touch 70 area wide for highs on Friday.

Saturday will be a transition day as clouds thicken and late day showers, mostly after sunset, look possible ahead of our next system that will be here for Sunday. Rain showers will be present, but a midday break in the rain could allow temperatures to climb into the upper 60s to even a few 70s before rain returns. On the back side of this system, cooler air for Monday and some lingering showers will be present.

We clear out Tuesday and start warming back up towards 70 and should be in the low 70s as we welcome in Spring officially on Thursday. There is a big wrinkle in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, and that is if a cold front that will arrive will produce any rain showers (or impact us at all). It is too early to say, so I am going to side with a dry solution and keep rain out of the forecast for now, but that could chance for the middle to latter portion of next week.
