Finally a mild day after a very cold beginning of March!

Skies have become clear early this Saturday morning and temperatures are not as cold as they have been with 30 degrees at daybreak in the Clifton area to the 20s further inland.

Today will be the mildest day in nearly two weeks as temperatures rise to near 50 degrees which is only about 4 degrees above normal for this time of year, skies will be partly cloudy.

A slight chance of rain or snow showers late tonight as a cold front moves across.  Sunday will be cooler in the low 40s.  Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour tonight or you will be late.

Another slight chance of rain or snow showers late Sunday night into early Monday.  It will remain cloudy on Monday with near seasonable temperatures.

Tuesday will be the mildest day of the upcoming week with highs reaching the mid 50s.

Still watching for a potential storm for Wednesday into Thursday.  The computer models are not in agreement this far out with the European model indicating a significant rain changing to snow event while the American model has most of the precipitation quickly moving offshore and only giving us either light rain or snow..

Clearing Thursday into Friday with below normal temperatures once again.

Looking further ahead it appears that mainly  below normal temperatures will continue through the third week of March,  St Patrick’s  Day looks to be quite chilly.
