Warmer weather in time for spring (3/19/20)
Spring will start with the potential for frost again overnight into Monday morning. Freeze Warnings are still in effect for areas where vulnerable vegetation is, killing crops and potentially causing damage to outdoor plumbing if exposed. Even though these warnings do not extend north, temperatures will be below freezing for our entire FOX 23 coverage area.
Temperatures Sunday night will fall to the lower and mid 20s by the morning. With high pressure overhead, we’ll experience mostly clear skies and calm winds over the next several hours.
Quiet, dry weather is expected to last through Monday night. During the day, temperatures will warm to the lower 50s thanks to winds out of the southwest and clear, blue skies. Our Java Jumpstart shows the lower 20s eventually warm to the middle 40s around lunchtime.
There are many rain chances this week, starting by Tuesday afternoon. A snapshot from Stormcast (below) shows rain showers expanding through our area by about 3 p.m. That band will push through and last through Tuesday evening, then taper off. Not a lot of precipitation is expected from this first round Tuesday afternoon.
Rain will be possible on and off through Friday off this week, but overall, we are trending warmer through Thursday as highs push toward the lower 70s. With that, the turn of spring looking more and more like warmer weather is here to stay.
