Preview of Spring

We are getting a preview of Spring weather this week. It will begin mild with showers, dry out and turn cool for a few days then repeat by the end of the weekend.

Rain and maybe even a rumble of thunder will move through tonight and tomorrow morning. It will turn colder and windy tomorrow so hold on to your hat. However, it will not be real cold as temperatures will be near average. It will remain seasonably cool through the end of the week as we get ready for a return of rain by the weekend.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves into our area overnight bringing a round of rain and a few thunderstorms as the air mass becomes a little unstable. The front sweeps through around sunrise tomorrow morning ending the rain but the winds kick up. Winds will be noticeable tomorrow as they pick up and gust from the northwest. Some of the gusts could be near 40 mph.

The air behind the cold front is cooler but not extremely cold so temperatures will be near average for this time of year. High pressure and sunny skies will be the weather theme through the end of the week.

Winds turn from the northwest to the south by Sunday ahead of another cold front which will bring us some rain Saturday night an Sunday.
