March is coming in kind-of like a lion with colder-than-normal temperatures, but the cold will only last for one day. Most of the first week of March will be fairly nice.
Today: Breezy and chilly with skies becoming mostly sunny.
High: 22 Wind: NW 10-18
Tonight: Clear and cold.
Low: 7 Wind: Becoming SW 5-10
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, windy, and warmer.
High: 42 Wind: SW 15-30
A quiet weather pattern is on the way for a few days. We should see a good amount of sunshine this week and temperatures will be mostly above normal. Today is the one day that will be chilly. A cold front moved through the area last night and has turned the wind to the northwest and it will continue around 10 to 18 mph through early afternoon before dying down later. There might be a few clouds early in the day, then plenty of sun will develop.
The rest of the week (through Saturday) will be milder and quiet. Each morning will be frosty with lows near 20 and each afternoon will be partly or mostly sunny with high generally in the low 40s. There is a slight chance of a few flurries Tuesday night and Friday night, otherwise it should be dry. Tuesday will be windy but then the rest of the week should be more calm.
On Sunday, skies will turn partly cloudy and it will be milder. Highs should reach the mid to upper 40s. On Monday there will be more clouds and a slight chance of showers.
Have an excellent Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 1-March-2021
