Mother Nature is going to give us another taste of spring to start out the week! However, a typical big March swing in the temperature will be setting up for the second half of the upcoming week.
Southwesterly winds will bring in warmer temperatures today although clouds will limit our maximum potential. Still, expect highs closing in on 60 degrees by the end of the afternoon! Some breaks in the clouds will make for a very nice day. Temperatures will only fall into the middle 40s tonight.
Another mild day is on tap for Tuesday as highs head near 60 degrees once again. Clouds will thicken late in the day in advance of an approaching storm system. This area of low pressure will bring a good chance for steady rain on Tuesday night. As the low passes by, winds will switch to the north bringing in much colder air. This will change leftover rain to sleet and snow. As of right now, accumulations look to remain under an inch due to a warm ground and the snow occurring during the day. However stay with examiner.com for the latest updates as we fine tune the track for this storm.
Behind that system, another shot of arctic air will follow. Lows could dip into the lower teens by Thursday morning! So enjoy our warm weather while it lasts. Have a great day!
