DAYS 1-5 (MARCH 19-23)
Several significant changes will take place during the next several days, from chilly and unsettled today, to much warmer on Friday, to turning colder but dry over the weekend. And don’t look now, but we may even need to track a bit of a winter storm by the end of this period as cold air will be in place and low pressure will be approaching from the southwest, with some parameters in place to support some interesting weather. But that’s still far enough away that there is plenty of time to re-evaluate the situation.
