Tuesday, March 26 Forecast Discussion

Temperatures today have struggled to warm up thanks to cloud cover north of I-20 and the cold air that is continuing to filter in from the north. We will see another cold night tonight with lows in the upper 20s, and because of that, Freeze Warnings are up for everyone tonight. Make sure you protect sensitive plants and that your outdoor pets will have unfrozen water through the night.

We finally begin to rebound for highs on Wednesday. While not seasonal, we will get back towards 60 for Wednesday and in the mid 60s on Thursday before we finally reach the 70s for highs on Friday.

The first part of the weekend will be dry, with Friday and most of Saturday the best days of the weekend. The high pressure that has brought us this cold air will move to our east, turn our winds from the south, and warm us up. This will set the stage for a cold front to arrive late Saturday and Sunday, igniting showers and maybe a storm or two. Rain showers could linger into Monday before our next cold front arrives on Tuesday, bringing us our next chance at rain.

The cold front on Tuesday looks to drop our temperatures for the later portion of the week back into the 60s. At least starting on Monday, we can say, "April showers bring May flowers!"
