Good Saturday and welcome to our Saint Patrick’s Day Weekend. Thermometers will be all over the place and we will have rounds of showers and some thunderstorms. This will be the lead up to a wild week of weather that starts with a severe thunderstorm threat and ends with a snow threat.
A cold front continues to sag into the state today and this will lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temps will be very warm in the south and west and cooler in the north. That cool air will become chilly later tonight and Sunday as it continues to overspread the rest of the state.
Your Saint Patrick’s Day will be soggy with locally heavy downpours. Temps in the 40s will make it feel as ugly as it looks.
Milder air will flood back in here on Monday as low pressure cranks up to our west. This will drag a cold front across the state and may lead to some strong or severe thunderstorms. Winds are going to howl and some of those storms may tap that wind energy.
Here’s what’s lurking behind that system…
This is an extreme pattern for this time of year and it’s one that may carry us into early April. Ugh.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
