Rainy periods Thursday, Friday and this weekend

Bright sunshine, a blue sky, and temperatures hit the low-70s Wednesday afternoon.  That’s hard to beat, but it won’t last although we are only three weeks from the official ‘First Day of Spring’!

Rain looks light through Thursday morning: generally less than 0.50” or less in most communities. More showers and thicker clouds keep it cooler Thursday, but it does not get cold just yet: highs in the mid-60s with a light north wind behind a weak cool front. Expect a chance of some showers each day through the weekend, and then a major late-season cold front sweeps through plunging temperatures to levels we haven’t seen since January!

How much rain? Last week’s rainfall was incredible: up to 12-13” in spots. This week’s (and weekend’s) rainfall is meager compared to that, but it’s on par with what you should expect with a wet pattern in late February and early March. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday bring a chance of showers each day; some periods of rain may be a little heavier than others.

For example, Thursday’s rain looks heaviest in the morning; then it’s spotty showers in the afternoon. Friday and Saturday both bring low amounts of rain with spotty, hit-or-miss, generally light showers. Sunday’s rain looks more impactful: around 0.5” to 1.5” in total. That could bring seven-day amounts up to around 1-2” in all.
