Nice, but Chilly Weekend

Weather

Tonight is going to be another cold one. We will see some clouds build in, but stay dry throughout the evening. Temperatures will fall back into the mid 20s and that is how we will kick off the weekend. You will want those winter coats if you are going anywhere tonight.

Saturday brings back more sunshine. Northwest flow will still be holding on for a period of time through the day, so expect chilly temperatures again as highs only make it into the low 40s once more. It will be a cold night too with lows back in the 20s.

Sunday is still looking nice, everyone should be back in the 40s at this point. Any clouds from Saturday should clear up leading to a bright and sunny day. Another wave of high pressure is still pushing through keeping our northwest flow going as well but we will see it drop south of us by the evening signaling warmer days ahead.

Monday, we start to feel more like March. Highs in the 50s are expected as our high pressure drifts off to the south and swings us from northwest winds to southwest winds. The sun stays with us too, and there is the off chance it might even feel a little humid.

Tuesday we keep our steady climb of temperatures going with most into the mid and upper 50s in the afternoon hours. More sun is expected but it’s the winds that help to make the difference since they’ll be a bit stronger out of the south versus Monday.

Wednesday, we do expect clouds to build throughout the day but much like Tuesday the lack of sun will be made up for with southerly winds picking up and moving warm air in. With that in mind, Wednesday will be a bit breezy, winds will be 10-15 mph out of the south with some stronger breezes.

Thursday we’ll have to watch our lingering high pressure, this might just stop our dry streak from ending as it might sit off the coast and gain strength. This is commonly called a Bermuda High and acts almost like a wall deflecting storms from entering the area. It won’t last forever but it could give us just one more day of near perfect weather.

In the extended forecast it does rain. Between Friday to Sunday next week a stalled out front begins to push and nudge at our high pressure and brings showers and some steadier rain at times. This will be beneficial, we can only stay dry for so long before it becomes harmful. This looks to be all rain as we keep temperatures mild through the weekend.
