What a strange late March around the Tri-State. First, we have flurries and snow showers. Second, temperatures will be more winter-like than spring. A Canadian cold front is producing the snow and bringing much colder than average weather.
Heading out the door tonight, make sure that you bring a heavy coat because the skies will clear and temperatures will drop fast down into the low 30s.
Overnight lows will fall to near 20 degrees giving us a chance for a record low. The record is 18 in 1934. I’m afraid to tell you that this weekend will be cold too.
Saturday will see highs that are near our normal overnight lows. I’m forecasting mid to upper 30s, at least the sun will be out all day. Yet, we could set another record because the “cold” high temperature is 37 degrees in 1923.
Saturday night will again be cold with evening temps in the low 30s and overnight lows dropping again to the low 20s.
On Sunday, high pressure shifts giving us winds out of the southwest which always means warmer temps for us. The wind change and mostly sunny skies will push the afternoon highs near 50 degrees.
Of course, the average is 58 degrees which we’ll exceed next week. Sunday afternoon will see increasing clouds just ahead of a cold front that will trigger rain by around 6 p.m. More sunshine is in store for the start of the work week.
