Strong Winds, Much Cooler Overnight/Wednesday
4:30 p.m. Tue 11 March 2014
A Wind Advisory is in effect overnight and into Wednesday.
Rapidly rising pressures overnight will make for very windy conditions with winds gusting into the 40-mph range overnight and into Wednesday morning. Secure trash cans and other loose objects outside of your home. Some dust may also show up later tonight or on Wednesday.
A stiff northerly wind continues Wednesday with gusts over 30 mph. Skies will be partly cloudy and it will be much cooler than Tuesday – highs for Wednesday will be in the 50s.
Surface high pressure moves overhead tomorrow night and winds should rapidly decrease Wednesday night. The combination of clear skies, light winds and dry air will allow for a cold one Thursday morning; frost or possibly a freeze is in my forecast with lows from the upper 20s to mid 30s.
Milder weather returns as we approach the weekend and highs should get to around 70 by Saturday. There’s some chance of rain either Saturday or Sunday with passing mid-level waves, but fairly dry low-level air suggests heavy rain is unlikely.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Very Windy, Lows 39 to 43
Wednesday: Very Windy, Cooler…..Highs 55 to 58
Thursday: Sunny, Breezy, Frost A.M.…..32/65
Friday: Partly Cloudy…..40/67
Saturday: 20% Showers …..48/68
Sunday: 20% Showers …45/64
Monday: Partly Cloudy…..39/62
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny,…..46/72
May You Have a Great Wednesday!
