March 15th, 2013 Forecast

An unsettled week ahead weatherwise could put a damper on your St. Patrick's Day festivities.  However, there are still some chilly temperatures to get through before then.  For tonight, skies will be mostly clear and cold with a few gusts of wind out of the northwest.  Lows tonight in the mid- to upper 20's throughout the region.  Your Friday starts out partly sunny, but clouds will slowly increase throughout the afternoon and into the overnight.  There is a chance of showers very late.  Highs tomorrow around 50-degrees around the metro and to the south and east and in the upper 40's to the north and west.  Winds tomorrow out of the west at 5 to 15 mph.

The start of the weekend looks soggy, with scattered rain showers possible throughout the day.  There is a possibility of some snowflakes mixing into the rain early Saturday morning.  Highs Saturday getting into the upper 40's.  Most of Sunday, and St. Patrick's Day, will be dry.  Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day but there is a chance of rain and/or snow showers late Sunday and into Monday morning.  Highs on Sunday will be around 50-degrees.  Monday will be mostly overcast with scattered rain and snow showers throughout the day, with highs in the mid- to upper 40's.  Tuesday will remain unsettled, with isolated showers and mostly cloudy skies, but by late evening, I expect the skies to start to clear.  Wednesday will feature mostly sunny skies, finally, and cooler.  Highs will only be in the mid-40's.  By Thursday, there will be sun and clouds with highs back into the upper 40's.
