Quite a shock to the system with the brief period of heavy snow yesterday that was just enough to put a fresh new coating on the ground. It is a grim reminder that March and even the upcoming month of April can and usually do have quite a variety of weather associated with them. We are not quite out of the snow chances just yet!
Our up and down temperature pattern will continue to be the focus for the remainder of this week and into the weekend.
For today, clouds will continue to dominate the skies with increasing chances for rain as we head towards the late afternoon and evening hours. Winds will continue to be gusty, right around 20 MPH. Highs today will be chilly, in the lower 40s.
Tonight rain chances will continue to increase with even a couple thunderstorms possible. Rainfall amounts could end up being between 0.50″ and 0.75″ which is just what we need after the long dry spell so far this spring. At this time it looks like the heaviest storms will remain to the south of the area where better instability and dynamics will exist. Either way, tonight will be pretty wet. Lows in the upper 30s.
Wednesday will feature slightly warmer temperatures but continued windy conditions with highs in the lower 50s.
Have a great Tuesday.
