Good Sunday, everyone. As we get set to put the wraps on our frigid weekend, we look ahead toward changes for the week ahead. These changes will warm our temps up and that will likely mean an increase in late week rain and storms.

This pattern looks very active!

Temps today start in the teens for many and end with highs in the 30s with a mix of sun and clouds. This cold hangs into Monday as we start things out around 20 before recovering into the upper 40s and low 50s.

The numbers climb by Tuesday and Wednesday and that climb means a few showers and storms rumble through. That looks to kick in for Wednesday with scattered stuff for Thursday as temps take off. These increasing temps will be ahead of a strong storm system likey to roll from the Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley on Friday.

The end result could be some big winds, strong storms and heavy rain…

That’s a setup to watch as we will pop a southeast ridge ahead of that system. This appears to be the first in a series of storm systems set to roll across the country for the final week and change of March and into early April…

This setup can put down a lot of water across our part of the world. Notice how all the ensembles have the bullseye of heaviest precipitation right on top of us over the next two weeks…


All of this is likely to come with a temperature pattern that skews cooler than normal deep into spring.

I’ll take a more in depth look at the spring ahead with my Monday update.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and take care.
