Sunny Sunday, then Rain Comes Back Before Drastic Chill

Posted: Updated:

Great Sunday:  After some patchy fog Sunday morning, our sky will clear and the sun will be out the rest of the day.  Temperatures will warm from the upper 30s and low 40s all the way into the 60s by afternoon.  Enjoy!

Monday Different:  Clouds will increase in advance of a storm system pushing rain in our direction.  It won't rain until late in the day though.  Highs will reach the 50s with more clouds than sun.

Tuesday:  It will rain early Tuesday and then clear out.  A cold front will push through after the rain and turn our conditions windy and cooler. 

Wednesday:  The sun will be back out as temperatures start in the 30s for lows with 50s for an afternoon max.

Late Week Cold Snap:  Canada unleashes quite a bit of cold air late next week.  A lot of it heads far to the south even past us.  There is a lot of evidence that we will be very cold next Friday and Saturday.

This dip in the jet stream also raises some opportunity for a southern storm track, but so far it's looking like the ridge out west won't be aligned quite right for a storm system to accompany the cold air next weekend.  Of course, this could change with some chance (probably slim) of a coastal storm riding a favorable track for snow.  Just because a system isn't showing now doesn't mean that the situation isn't worth monitoring.  I haven't even looked at surface charts for details as much of the information worth gathering comes from the 10,000ft+ level where energy dives in and rounds the base of our cold trough next weekend.

Early March may very well be one of the coldest air masses we have felt this winter.  It's safe to say the poor groundhog was terribly wrong on the early spring forecast
