Clouds, but Sparse Rain

After a chilly weekend, temperatures climb step-by-step today through Wednesday. A warm front moves through from the SW Tuesday completing that transition. Ahead and along that warm front, we'll have lots of clouds. This afternoon and tonight have only the slightest chance of a stray, light shower. The PM hours Tuesday will have a few more showers around the area, but coverage will remain rather spotty. Wednesday, March 1, will live up to its roaring reputation... A front moves through Wednesday evening. Expect afternoon and evening showers and storms followed by much colder temperatures Wednesday night.

Forecast Discussion

Temperatures take a roller coaster ride during the next 10 days. Today through Wednesday, we are on the belt pulling "up" as a warm front moves through from the SW Tuesday. Today's highs are 8-10 degrees warmer than Sunday. We'll add another 8-10 Tuesday, and another 5 or so Wednesday. Ahead of and along the warm front, clouds dominate the skies but rain is spotty and mostly light--just the slightest chance this afternoon and tonight, but more (but not all) of us get a shower Tuesday afternoon.

A sharp cold front from the northwest arrives Wednesday evening. Skies become cloudy by Wednesday afternoon then showers and storms move through in the afternoon and evening. Sharply cold air hits us Wednesday night, and even a snow flurry is possible overnight. Winds will become impressive.

Thursday and Friday are cold by this winter's standards (only slightly colder than seasonal norms in reality). A secondary surge of cold air arrives Thursday night making Friday colder than Thursday. Expect windy conditions both days.

A gradual mild-up commences Saturday and pickup steam Sunday--under mostly clear skies. Skiers, keep a stiff upper-lip. The next cold front arrives Monday night. The air behind it looks even colder than this week's chill.
