With the time changing, robins returning, daffodil shoots popping up, and milder air on tap this weekend, some real relief from our winter weariness is at hand! It is still chilly this morning with readings in the 20s and lower 30s, but high pressure and westerly winds should give us a mostly sunny Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 50s. A cold front is poised to pass through our area later today, but the consequences should not be all that dire. Look for mostly cloudy skies overnight with a chance of showers as temperatures stay in the upper 30s. The only snow showers are likely on the western slopes of the Appalachians. Sunday is expected to start out cloudy, but skies should clear by afternoon. With northwesterly winds around 10 mph, Sunday will likely be a slightly cooler day with highs in the upper 40s.
The beginning of nex tweek looks quite comfortable with highs on Monday & Tuesday around 60. A disturbance at midweek however will remind us that March is month of all seasons. Showers, colder temperatures and perhaps some snow are likely on Wednesday. The chillier than normal readings will last through the end of the work week. Still, any lingering wintry weather will be looking over its shoulder at all the spring time actors ready to take the stage. Spring's official debut is March 20th. Enjoy your weekend.
