Cold Continues

Mid winter cold remains through Thursday with temperatures running 15 to 20 degrees below average for this time of year. Friday and Saturday feature a little thaw with 40s possible both days accompanied by plenty of sunshine. But the warm up doesn’t last into next week. While we contend with the cold, at least there are no big storms in sight. A few flurries or snow showers are possible Wednesday afternoon and again on Sunday.  Other than a light coating of snow in spots, that’s about it!

Fun fact (and a bit of good news), we gain 1 hour and 22 minutes of daylight in the month of March!  Longer days ahead and warmer days…eventually!

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, not as cold. Low: 13-20.

Tomorrow: Becoming mostly cloudy. Chance for a flurry or snow shower, mainly late day and at night. A coating is possible in spots. High temperatures in the lower 30s to middle 30s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, seasonably cool. High temperatures around 30 degrees.

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny, not as cold as recent days. High temperatures near average, around the 40 degree mark.

Saturday: Sunshine mixing in with afternoon clouds. Milder. High temperature in the lower to middle 40s.

Sunday: Becoming mostly cloudy, chance for a few flurries. High temperatures in the upper 30s.
