Good Monday morning……
It’s going to be a busy week of weather with winter and spring dooking it out. Pretty typical of March, actually. The week will start on a cloudy and mild note today. A warm front is crossing the region this morning and a few widely scattered showers/sprinkles are accompanying it.
Temperatures will climb pretty easily into the lower and mid 50s today.
As strong low pressure tracks across the country over the next 12-18 hours, severe weather will become likely for parts of the Midwest. Thankfully that will not be a problem for us.
This simulated radar shows us getting wet tonight and tomorrow….free car wash time. Plan on a wet and windy Tuesday.
Rain totals are likely to average 0.50″-1.00″ with this event.
Behind the front, still quite mild and windy Wednesday with some sunshine.
A classic springtime battle between warm and cold looks to set up very late this week and weekend. Very cold air will be trying to infiltrate the country from the north while at the same time unusually warm air will not be looking to leave the stage without a fight.
The result will be a storm, somewhere. Where? That is what we don’t know just yet. Just know that the weekend will bring the chance for snow/ice/mixed precipitation. If everything came together just right it could be a significant storm. There are also scenarios on the table in which the cold air presses the storm so far south it essentially misses us.
Pay careful attention to the forecast over the next several days! It’s likely to be changeable.
