Forecast Last Updated at Friday, March 5, 2021 at 4:03PM

Chilly & Breezy; Overnight Clouds; Weekend Sun

The weekend is dominated by a good amount of sunshine and seasonably chilly air. The only fly in the ointment is a brisk northwest wind that doesn't let up until Sunday night. Of lesser consequence is a disturbance passing over the northern Gulf helping to generate some extra cloudiness tonight and through Saturday as well. Those that are looking for a milder reprieve, hang in there, next week has you covered.

Forecast Discussion

It shouldn't be so difficult to write such an easy forecast :-). A running joke among the forecast team this morning is how we don't know what to do with ourselves. Therefore, there's no reason to belabor the quietest stretch of weather in months.

The most important feature on the weather map this weekend is Canadian based high pressure moving overhead and shuffling off the East Coast early next week. It's a dry and chilly airmass and we'll feel the full brunt of the chill the next few mornings. Additionally, a potent little low pressure center drops southeast from Texas and moves to the Florida Keys Saturday night sending a canopy of high clouds across the region late this evening through most of Saturday.

Once the high moves off the coast a warming southerly flow gradually takes over next week. Temperatures go from seasonably chilly this weekend to seasonably mild by Tuesday/Wednesday. Eventually the mild and dry pattern breaks down, but not before next weekend.
