Forecast: March Winds to Roar

By Jason Samenow

The first day of March will live up to its windy reputation. Blustery winds from the northwest will gust as high as 30mph. But these winds will diminish somewhat by tomorrow which will feature sunshine and temperatures climbing above 50.

TODAY

Windy and cool. Mid to upper 40s. Early morning clouds along with a stray flurry or two will gradually give way to considerable sunshine by afternoon. Air temperatures will likely reach the high 40s but winds from the northwest at 20-25mph will make it feel like the 30s. Overnight, winds will slowly slacken with lows in the upper 20s downtown and low to mid 20s in the suburbs.

Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday and early next week...

SUNDAY

Sunny. 52-55. Cloudless skies will rule thanks to high pressure sitting smack-dab on top of us. All of the sunshine will boost temperatures up and over 50 with considerably less wind than today. Clear and not as cold overnight with lows near 35 downtown and around freezing in the suburbs.

A LOOK AHEAD

You might consider extending your weekend into Monday which will have mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s. A strong storm will pass to our west Tuesday with rain developing, heavy at times, and possible thunderstorms. Stormy weather will continue into Tuesday night, when the rain may briefly change to snow in outlying north and west suburbs before ending. Skies will gradually clear Wednesday, with highs near 50.
