Lots of sun with a southerly breeze pushed our Tuesday afternoon high to 68 degrees. We are still ranked as the 13th warmest March on record with one more mild day on tap for tomorrow.
The mild conditions will be accompanied by rain showers on Wednesday with showers developing after 9am. Scattered showers continue into the afternoon and evening with some lulls in the showers at times. Total rainfall by Thursday morning will average near a half inch. Cold air quickly arrives Thursday morning which will also bring a brief period of snow showers during the Thursday morning commute. We do not expect any significant snow accumulation, however a slushy accumulation on some grassy surfaces cannot be ruled out. More importantly, we will need to prepare for windy and much colder conditions for the rest of Thursday. Northwest winds of 15-20mph with gusts of 40mph will occur Thursday with an afternoon high near 45 degrees.
Friday remains cold and still breezy. Low temperatures for Friday and Saturday morning will drop into the 20s, so any potted plants that were set outdoors recently should be brought indoors. Saturday features lots of sunshine and seasonable highs in the upper 50s and Easter Sunday continues sunny with highs nearing 70 degrees.
