Wednesday, March 20 Forecast Discussion

Spring officially began today, and plenty of sunshine for the back part of the day greeted us, although we fell short of our normal high for this time of year. The full sunshine will turn mostly cloudy by the end of Thursday ahead of our next system that will be arriving from our west for Friday.

Friday will see showers and storms overspread the area as a warm front lifts north. Locations that end up south of the warm front will see temperatures potentially spike into the 70s while locations north will remain in the 60s. There may be a few strong to severe storms on Friday, but the best chance for severe weather looks to be late Saturday as the upper level system works through and provides more uplift. Right now, it appears our main threat will be large hail, very similar to what we saw on Monday, but it is too early to rule out any other mode of severe weather.

This system will depart early on Sunday, leaving most of Sunday dry. Temperatures will fall through the day on Sunday and a very cool beginning of Easter Week is shaping up. Highs may not be able to get out of the 50s through the middle of next week.
