Unfortunately, we weren't lucky enough NOT get to some record breaking snow on this St. Patrick's Day, however, we will finally see things come to an end as we head into the early afternoon hours. This is the 10th biggest snow storm in March and the 3rd heaviest late season snow, knocking the infamous 1993 Super Storm (March 12-13th) right out of the top ten. Today temperatures will barely crack the 30 degree mark.

 

ZZZZZ

By the overnight hours, temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 20s. High pressure sits to the north through the midweek bringing in an easterly flow keeping us in the cloud cover. Some light drizzle, possibly some flurries and some light freezing rain cannot be ruled out for your Tuesday, although it will be light. Temperatures for Tuesday reach into the mid to upper 30s. Clouds continue for Wednesday with warming temperatures into the mid to upper 40s. Sunshine FINALLY returns on Thursday but there is a chance for some afternoon passing showers as temperatures shoot into the mid to upper 50s. Sunshine sticks around for the entire day on Friday with daytime highs finally in the lower to mid 60s. More rain expected on Saturday, but temperatures will remain in the lower 60s before we drop off on Sunday: lower to mid 50s.
