With temperatures cooling down below freezing for a good portion of the next few days the flooding should subside. Some “melting” weather will return next week, but it should be at a slower pace.
Today you will notice a big difference as compared to yesterday. A cold and blustery northwest wind will greet you. It will be in the 10 to 20 mph range through the day with gusts as high as 30 mph. High temps will only reach the low to mid 30s, so temps will not be moving much from what we experience this morning. Along with the colder conditions we will have mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered flurries. In short, it will feel a little more like Winter again.
Saturday will be chilly as well, but with less wind and a partly cloudy sky, it will not be too bad for the middle of March. Highs should again be in the 30 to 35 range. Sunday will be slightly warmer with high temps in the mid to upper 30s, but there will be more clouds and a slight chance of light snow showers.
We should experience a gradual warm-up next week, and conditions should be quite pleasant by Thursday and Friday. We will have a mix of sun and clouds for Monday and a chance for a couple of light rain or snow showers on Tuesday, then we should have more sun than clouds from Wednesday through Friday. High temps will be in the 30s on Monday, then climb into the low 40s for Tuesday. The mercury should top out in the low to mid 40s Wednesday, then reach the upper 40s on Tursday and low 50s on Friday. Make some plans to get outside late next week.
Have a spectacular Friday! Meteorologist Justin Loew 4:30 a.m. 15-March, 2019
