The Week Ahead: March Mildness

Dan Stillman @ 2:35 PM

Basketball madness has arrived, and right on cue so have mild temperatures. Highs will hang out in the 60s, maybe even popping into the 70s at times, for much of the week. However, it looks likely that we'll turn cooler by the end of the week, especially over the weekend, which could be downright chilly.


Forecast Confidence: High-Very HighSunny start, mild. Mostly sunny early, then increasing clouds during the afternoon. After a crisp start with wake-up temps in the 30s, highs will rebound to 59-63. Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy with lows 40-45 in town, 35-40 in the burbs.

The Upcoming Week at a Glance

Warmest Day: Wednesday, High 75.
Coldest Day: Sat or Sun, Highs Upper 30s to Upper 40s.
Precip Chances: Wednesday?; Thurs-Fri; Saturday?
Dry Days: Mon-Tues; Wednesday and Saturday?; Sunday.
The Week's Wild Cards: How warm will it get on Wednesday? When on Thursday will it rain? How cold will the weekend be?
Climatological Average High/Low: 54-56/36-38

Forecast Confidence: HighShooting for 70. With a warm breeze picking up from the southwest by afternoon, highs should reach the upper 60s to around 70 under partly sunny skies. Overnight, partly cloudy with lows in the low-to-mid 50s in town, 45-50 in the burbs.


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighSpring fever. Flow from the south, ahead of a storm system developing in the Central Plains, will pump even warmer air into the area. I think we'll see a good amount of clouds and maybe an afternoon or evening shower. But even so, highs in the low 70s seems like a good bet, with 75 not out of reach. Overnight, mostly cloudy and mild with a chance of a shower. Lows in the low-to-mid 50s.


Forecast Confidence:MediumMild, increasing chance of rain. As of now, it looks like the center of the storm system coming out of the Central Plains will track across the Midwest and then pass to our northwest. For us, that would mean continued flow from the south on Thursday, with more clouds and a better chance of precipitation, especially late in the day and into the overnight as a cold front comes through. Highs in the mid 60s to low 70s, with an increasing afternoon breeze. Overnight, cloudy and breezy with a chance of rain. Lows in the mid 40s to near 50.


Forecast Confidence: Low-MediumCooler day, cold night; clouds and showers could persist. Lingering rains are possible in the morning. Then, upper-level energy trailing behind the departing storm system could keep things cloudy and showery throughout the day. Highs in the low-to-mid 50s. Winds may become gusty out of the northwest late in the day. Overnight, clearing, windy and cold. Could even see a snow shower. Lows in the upper 20s to mid 30s in town, mid 20s to low 30s in the burbs.

The Weekend

Forecast Confidence: MediumTemperatures tumble. The outlook for the weekend is cold and breezy with highs only in the upper 30s to upper 40s, and a flurry or snow shower isn't out of the question for Saturday. Lows Saturday night in the 20s.
