BLUE SKY AND SUNSHINE: We begin this day with temperatures in the 30s, and we will warm to near 60 this afternoon with sunshine in full supply.
Tomorrow will be sunny, but breezy and cooler with a gusty northwest wind averaging 12-22 mph, gusting to 30 mph at times as the pressure gradient becomes tighter. The high will drop into the mid 50s, and the wind will make it feel cooler.
THURSDAY MORNING FREEZE: We are projecting a low early Thursday in the 27-32 degree range. Way, way too early to think about planting anything that will be harmed by frost or a freeze. To really be safe, I always suggest waiting until April 15 since an early April cold snap is just about a given around here.
We warm to near 60 Thursday afternoon as we enjoy another sunny day.
DELIGHTFUL WEEKEND: The warming trend will continue into the weekend. Friday’s high will be around 70, with low to mid 70s Saturday and Sunday. A few scattered clouds will show up over the weekend, but a good supply of sunshine will get through. Sure looks great, and it should be the warmest weekend so far in 2013.
NEXT RAIN: The 00Z GFS is a little faster with the next rain producer; it shows a chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm on Monday of next week, but no severe weather threat for now.
VOODOO LAND: The 00Z GFS is somewhat more aggressive with rain events later this month, showing good rains here around March 25 and March 27. See the Weather Xtreme video for the maps, graphics, and details.
TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY: The great Blizzard of 1993 started… see the blog for memories, pictures, and details.
