Wow…not a nice day. If I wasn’t afraid of having my mouth washed out with soap, I would tell you what I really think about this weather pattern. But for broadcast purposes, I will behave myself. The morning snow is long gone, but the next batch of precipitation is on the way. No snow for our area tonight, just rain. And the rain may be heavy at times. One little side effect of this next system is a push of relatively warm air that will precede its arrival in the region. Temperatures will slowly, but steadily rise tonight from the upper 30s to to 50 degrees mark, or higher, by day. The rain will end during the morning commute as the cold front sweeps across the area. Skies will become partly sunny and temperatures will continue to climb into the 50s. Colder air will arrive tomorrow night. High pressure will deliver a string a generally dry and chilly weather from Wednesday straight through the weekend. Average high temperatures are now in the upper 50s. After tomorrow, we will not see temperatures that warm for, at least, another 8 or 9 days. With this kind of forecast, the official arrival of spring at the time of the Vernal Equinox on Wednesday, is not very inspiring.
