This cold March day will lead to our 16th but final night of temperatures dropping below zero for this year. Good riddance! Lows overnight will drop just below zero with shelter valleys likely as cold as -10. Breeze tonight will be light but enough for wind chills to feel in the minus teens.
This will lead to a bright but cold Thursday with afternoon highs in the teens and lows that night in the single digits.
Then comes the warmer winds that will kick in during the day on Friday, and continue so in the days ahead. Highs on Friday will reach the upper 30s before climbing a few degrees warmer around 40 by Saturday.
But wait! The climb continues! With more Pacific air flowing through, highs both Sunday and Monday will be in the 40s before our first 50+ degree temperature of the year is felt by Tuesday.
What’s nice is no organized moisture is not in the forecast for at least a solid week. Just plenty of snow melting.
