WEATHER BLOG: Mild For Now
We’re taking the high up some for Friday as there is a decent warm surge ahead of this front approaching from the northwest. Heading into the next couple of days, it can be said that the weather pattern certainly could be a whole lot better. But, at the same time, it could also be much worse. The middle of March is known for its changing weather patterns, and even though Friday will probably end on a cloudy note, we will probably see a few hours of sunshine…Don’t get used to it!!
As a front located in southeastern Canada begins to press to the south late Friday, it is expected to eventually stall in the mid Atlantic region Saturday. And, as a low pressure system that is forming early Friday out in the Plains/Midwest cruises along this boundary, we’re anticipating a shower here late Friday, then occasional rain and drizzle Saturday and Saturday evening.
Temperatures mostly in the lower 50s Friday should wind up in the 30s in the evening, and it is not out of the question that somebody sees a few wet snow flakes late Friday or Saturday morning in the viewing area.
However, the balance of Saturday should just bring us rain, as well as temperatures no higher than the 40s. Even though a period of dry weather seems likely Saturday night, another pulse of low pressure moving out of the Tennessee Valley could very well produce another round of rain on Sunday here, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.
Want more? Well, the largest storm in this series of disturbances looks as if it will bring a few periods of rain Monday and Monday night. By Tuesday of next week, we should finally break out of the unsettled pattern. But, it is also liable to be windy and rather chilly, too.
Have a good weekend!
