March 23rd, 2013 Forecast

A few flurries were flying around this afternoon, but as we go into this evening, we'll see the chance of rain or snow fairly low.  Another cold night is on tap though with mostly clear skies.  Lows will be near 30-degrees around the city and to the south and east, and lows will dip into the mid- to upper 20's to the north and west.  Winds will still be from the west at 5 to 15 mph.  Tomorrow, skies will be mostly sunny and it will also feel warmer.  Highs on either side of the 50-degree mark for most places with winds from the west at 10 to 15 mph. 

Sunday will see increasing clouds throughout the day.  A few isolated showers could be around in the afternoon but we could start seeing a bulk of the moisture later in the evening.  Precipitation could start as rain showers, then a period of mixing before changing over to all snow.  Temperatures on Sunday will get into the upper 40's with lows in the lower 30's.  This snowfall will be like the many other small ones we've had this winter season.  Monday morning's commute could be messy, but a majority of the snowfall will accumulate on grassy surfaces and sidewalks.  By late morning to early afternoon, the snow will change over to rain before tapering off late.  Monday's high will only get into the lower 40's, so there could be a longer period of snowfall on Monday morning. 

Tuesday will remain mostly cloudy, with the possibility of an isolated shower, but with clearing later in the day.  Highs on Tuesday will get back into the upper 40's, so any snow that does fall, will melt.  The sun will return on Wednesday, with highs around 50-degrees.  Thursday will be partly sunny, with temperatures reminiscent of average temperatures from the beginning of the month.  By Friday, sun and clouds with temperatures in the lower 50's will take us into the Easter weekend.
