Forecast for Sunday, March 3, 2013

An upper level trough of low pressure will continue to impact our region through Sunday Afternoon. This likely means a period of mostly cloudy skies with occasional flurries and sprinkles. There could be even an isolated heavier shower in parts of the region. Monday will be blustery and sunny. Tuesday will start off sunny followed by a gradual increase in clouds.

An area of low pressure will be developing across the Midwest before traveling into the Southeast. Eventually, this low pressure area should emerge off of the East Coast on Wednesday. This low may head out to sea or turn up the coast once it emerges. Until the system gets into the Pacific Northwest, the models will have a hard time being consistent on the storm track. This isn't expected to occur until sometime Sunday Night or Monday Morning. Until more is known about the storm track, forecasting the temperature and precipitation on Wednesday is quite tricky especially when we have borderline temperatures and a higher sun angle to consider. 45 degrees seemed to be the best average to take…but it can go 5 to 10 degrees either way at this point. Yes, there is the potential for a snowy outcome. But there is also the potential for just mainly rain or mostly dry weather on Wednesday.
