Compared to the last several weeks, this one’s going to be downright fantastic. We’re not out of winter’s grasp yet, but at least we’re getting a brief reprieve.
IT’S JUST A JUMP TO THE LEFT
THE WEEK AHEAD
I’m not quite ready to close the book on winter just yet, but the upcoming week is going to give us a healthy taste of spring. Temperatures will have no problem getting to the 60-degree mark over the weekend, and we’ll likely make a good run at 70 degrees by Monday. If we do make 70, it will be the first time we’ve done so since January 30.
Our only chance for some rain for the moment looks to be late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. I’d expect to see some increasing clouds through the day Monday, followed by clearing skies through most of the rest of the week. The potential for a few more showers may come by Thursday or Friday.
Even though we’ll be cooler mid-week, high temperatures will only be a handful of degrees below average.
There’s another shot at some colder air and a little precipitation Thursday night or Friday. Right now temperatures Thursday night look too warm to support anything other than rain, but I’m going to keep an eye on it. Even if it does produce something frozen, there’s a near-zero chance of anything accumulating based on current projections.
