After spending about 72 hours below the freezing mark, we finally climbed back above 32 this afternoon. As we head into the weekend expect more of the same, temps near the average high of 37 degrees both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will feature a lot of sunshine but a weak disturbance may trigger some flurries or a brief period of light snow very early Sunday morning…not a big deal but a few spots may end up with a thin coating. By afternoon milder air will return with a little sunshine.
A coldfront will slip through early on Monday morning ushering in another shot of cold air…highs will struggle to reach 32 and the wind will create icy windchills. But the cold will be short-lived as a surge of warmer air will work up from the south and temps will reach the 40s by Tuesday afternoon. High pressure will settle in a position just off the East Coast…one similar to a Summer pattern…the result will be potential for 50 degrees at some point next week too!
There is still discrepancies with the timing of our next storm…safe to say at this point, Wednesday through Friday we have a chance of rain. Have a great weekend all!
