Good Thursday, everyone. After some of the lowest mid-March temps you will ever find around here, our overall temperature pattern is looking up. Spring weather slowly begins to show up again in the coming days.
Our day starts in the teens and ends with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s in many areas. Skies will stay partly to mostly sunny.
Clouds will quickly thicken Thursday night, with showers arriving Friday. That’s ahead of a cold front that sweeps in Friday night and early Saturday with a seasonal chill behind it.
Milder winds will blow Sunday and Monday, with highs Monday looking warmer and warmer. Several models now have highs in the 70s in the west:
Most of the state should surge well into the 60s at least.
Late-day showers and thunderstorms will increase along another cold front dropping in from the northwest:
The cold air coming behind that front should give us only a glancing blow for the middle of the week. Much milder air is now showing up for the end of next week as southwesterly winds crank:
Those temps may be ahead of a potent storm system that has a strong to severe thunderstorm look to it:
Here’s another showing up on the models a few days after that:
The two week rainfall forecast map from the GFS shows the action targeting our region into the Deep South:
Once our winter interlude is over, the seasonal setup continues to scream “severe weather!” in our region.
Have a great day and take care.
