A strong cold front will cross our area on Friday. Ahead of it, we’ll have to deal with a cold Thursday morning as we start with mid-upper 30s...but the afternoon will warm up nicely! Temps will actually rebound into the mid enjoy! By Friday, we’ll start with 60s, but temps will fall throughout the day as we get behind a cold front.


Friday’s cold front will bring us a soaking rain throughout the morning, then the rain will taper-off through the afternoon (salvaging your St. Patty’s Day plans). Rainfall estimates of 1-3″ are expected as rounds of moderate-heavy rain are likely. There won’t be much in the way of instability (or thunderstorm growth potential) in our local area, but there will be a lot of wind energy higher up in the atmosphere. So, there’s a low risk for isolated embedded storms that could have damaging wind gusts. Have ways of getting alerts throughout your Friday.

Behind this system, it gets much colder by the weekend. Get ready for another dose of freezing temps for your weekend mornings with well below average highs...staying in the 50s this weekend.
