Breezy Blue Skies

Jason Samenow @ 1:41 AM

Today is going to be a lot like yesterday but a bit less breezy, and a shade warmer. All in all, it's looking like a pretty nice early March afternoon. (FYI: the National Weather Service has discontinued the Fire Weather Watch due to lower winds and higher humidities expected this afternoon)


After a brisk start (low temps 25-30), expect mostly sunny skies today, with highs 50-55. Windy should drop about 10mph from yesterday, and generally average in the 10-20mph range. Overnight, clouds increase late as low pressure approaches from the west, with lows 28-32. (Expected conditions for Monday are indicated in the Snow Lover's Crystal Ball below)

Snow Lover's Crystal Ball
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Monday night, March 6
Probability: 25%
Potential Impact:
Commentary: A weak area of low pressure will move through the region on Monday, bringing the possibility of light snow or mixed precipitation in the morning changing to scattered, intermittent light mix or rain in the afternoon. The low should strengthen offshore Monday night, but probably too far offshore to throw back a lot of precip. However, the trailing upper level low may support some snow showers, squeezing out any lingering moisture--but the snowfall potential from this feature is limited.
