Quiet Stretch Ahead

After more than a foot of snow in the first five days of March, there will finally be a quiet stretch of mainly dry weather that lasts through the weekend into next week. It will be very cold on Friday, with morning low temperatures in the single digits to low teens.

It will be sunny and unseasonably cold in the afternoon. The normal high temperature is in the mid 40s, but it will only be in the mid 20s with a northerly breeze. The temperature will tumble again Friday night, reaching the single digits to low teens by dawn on Saturday.

Saturday afternoon will be partly sunny, breezy, and a bit warmer, but still cool for early March. Highs will be in the mid 30s. Sunday looks decent with highs near 40 under partly cloudy skies.

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour before going to sleep Saturday night. Sunset will be at 6:44 pm on Sunday – the first day of Daylight Saving Time.

Clouds will increase Sunday night, and a few snow showers are possible to start next workweek. It does not look like that system will have enough oomph to create a big impact on the morning commute, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it this weekend. Highs will be near 40 on Monday afternoon with some clearing late in the day.

The weather looks dry in the middle of next week, but it’s unclear if the warming trend will continue. Some models project multiple days in the 40s, while other models have a cold front coming through to bring the temperature back below normal into the 30s.
