Warmer temperatures are expected today as southerly flow becomes more established across the region. We didn’t quite make it to the freezing mark yesterday, but we definitely should today. I’m forecasting a conservative high of 37° under sunny skies.
A few clouds will move into the region overnight. The increased clouds and southerly flow will drop temperatures to right around freezing. The latest NAM Model even says we only drop to 34°!
The warmth should continue into Saturday, though mostly cloudy skies will limit temperatures some. Still, highs in the mid 40s are expected as southerly winds push up to around 10 mph.
Some patchy, light showers may develop on Saturday afternoon and into the evening and overnight hours. Temperatures will remain warm and might even warm through the night as southerly flow increases temperatures. Below is simulated radar from Noon Saturday to 6 AM Sunday.
A few showers may be possible Sunday morning, however these should depart the region by noon. Temperatures will warm dramatically into the mid to upper 50s with southerly winds around 10 mph.
A line of thunderstorms may for along a cold front to the west of the region. This line of storms may move into our region Sunday night. No severe weather is expected at this time, though some may be possible to our southwest. Overnight lows will remain mild and in the upper 40s. Below is the outline of potential severe weather to our southwest. This is subject to change.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
