Spring Preview is Over ...
A seasonable few days was followed by one mild (Thu) and one warm day (Fri), as forecast. Of course, it was much warmer than any model or forecaster thought (myself included). I did not find any one who thought 70-75 was possible for highs on Fri, even on Fri morning! Mid to upper 60s, yes. But low to mid 70s? Nope. But it did. And wow was it nice. Even had a strong line of storms develop to our east. A wonderful day that was all too short.
And today it was a return to seasonable weather for the middle of March, also as expected. And now we move forward …
The next three days (Sun – Tue) will feature cool afternoons and chilly overnights.
The only “fly in the ointment” will be overnight Sun. A weak system will pass to our south. This will bring a slight chance for a snow shower or even a light period of snow. A coating of snow is not out of the question, although unlikely. It’s more likely to stay dry. Other than that, sun and clouds, and rather mid-March like.
Wed will be milder, as temperatures rise to being very average: upper 40s to low 50s.
The big question comes for Thu – Sat. Is there a stronger storm or not? The ingredients are there, but it will hard to get them to come together in time to bring us a bigger storm. Off shore, yes. Here? I am not so sure. But that does not mean we will not have a chance for showers, both snow and rain. It is worth watching. One thing seems certain, a shot of cold air will come down for next weekend.
Once past next weekend, I think we are done with our chances/possibilities of snow. We can still get flurries, but accumulating snow chances I think are done once past the 24th of March.
Until then, enjoy.
