Forecast: Weather to Deliver March Madness
The weather will try to do its own "Big Dance" this week but will lack any rhythm. Tranquil and cool weather to start the week will shuffle towards a warm and wet Wednesday. Then the weather will jump step back to cooler conditions Thursday and, stuck in place, will stay cool through the weekend.
Sunny. 52-56. Freezing temperatures to start the day will rise about 20 degrees by early afternoon under a brightly shining sun. Most of the metro area should reach the low to mid 50s. Overnight, clear skies early will become mostly cloudy by dawn, with lows from the mid 30s in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown.
Slight chance of morning showers then partly sunny. 54-58. Clouds will likely fill the skies during the first half of the day, with a 20% chance of some light showers as a warm front moves through the area. During the afternoon, we should see a bit of sunshine with temperatures well into the 50s. Partly cloudy skies and mild conditions will be with us overnight, with lows in the low 40s in the colder suburbs and the upper 40s downtown.
Keep reading for the rest of the week...
Mild with p.m. showers and thunderstorms. 64-68. Flow from the south will boost temperatures well into the 60s, but an approaching cold front will bring increasing clouds and a good chance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening.
The front will have cleared the area by late evening and it will become windy and start to dry out overnight. Low temperatures should drop down to about 40.
A LOOK AHEAD
Thursday and Friday will be a lot likely yesterday and today: transitioning from windy and cool to calm and cool with high temperatures in the low 50s -- and no rain. Some rain is possible Saturday, with highs around 50. Sunday should be dry but still brisk, with highs again near 50.
