A busy weather start to March

Good Sunday and welcome to the month of March. This is often a very fickle weather month and that will be evident right off the bat. Things are starting out on a very busy note that will feature a lot of changeable conditions.

Our day is starting with a big temperature swing from north to south. Highs across the far north may struggle to get much past freezing while the south heads into the 40s. A wintry mix and snow will be likely in the north and that will cause some slippery travel.

Many areas will see some showers as a cold front sags in from the northwest. That front will knock temps back into the low and mid 30s for highs Monday.

The chilly temps will also be accompanied by the early day chance for a few snowflakes. You will also notice a big surge of spring across the deep south. Some of that air tries to push in here late Tuesday as a storm cranks to our west. That storm will bring more widespread showers and thunderstorms that can put down some heavy rains.

The forecast models continue to back off on the rain totals for the upcoming week:

That could be enough to cause some local high water issues.

The brief spike in temperatures won’t last very long as arctic air pushes back in on Wednesday. Check out the dramatic temperature drop:

That temperature drop could also be accompanied by another round of winter weather. That’s something we will need to keep a close eye on.
