For the first time this March, I can confidently say that snow is not expected this week (March 26-April 1). The main reason: above-average temperatures with highs in the 40s and 50s. [See our exclusive VIDEO forecast at the end of the article!]
Monday, Mar. 26: The first half of the new week will be absolutely beautiful and spring-like. Be sure you head outside today. There will be plenty of sunshine and pretty light winds. The real story, however, will be the temperatures. Expect high temperatures at around 50 degrees, which is at average.
Tuesday, Mar. 27: Tuesday will be even warmer with a temperature topping off in the mid 50s. That warmth will be paired with mostly sunny skies. This will be the nicest day of the week, and those warmer temperatures should melt more or all of the remaining snow cover.
Wednesday, Mar. 28: As we get into the latter half of the week, the weather will turn a bit more unsettled, but thankfully I only see rain in the forecast instead of snow, a sight I’m sure no one wants to see anymore after this very snowy and cold March. High temperatures will drop back down into the mid 40s for Wednesday along with mostly cloudy skies. Watch for stray, passing rain showers.
Thursday, Mar. 29: Showers may become a bit more prevalent Thursday. Expect mostly cloudy skies and a few rain showers, especially in the afternoon. The upside to the gray-looking day will be the above-average temperatures. Highs are currently forecast to be in the mid 50s, which is about five degrees above normal.
Friday, Mar. 30: On Friday, a weak coastal storm may actually develop. Coastal storm or not, rain showers are expected beginning in the afternoon and continuing into the overnight hours. These showers will be light, only amounting to less than half an inch. With temperatures in the 50s, there is a zero percent chance for any snow.
Saturday, Mar. 31: A passing cold front following Friday’s storm system will bring temperatures back down to below average on Saturday, but it won’t be a significant cool down. Expect mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid 40s. Strong winds may follow that front, however, so that will keep “feels-like” temperatures only in the 30s and possibly 20s.
Sunday, Apr. 1: A few more clouds may be in the picture on Sunday, but it should still be a dry, beautiful day with temperatures in the mid 40s. As long as you’re under that sunshine, it should feel quite nice out there.
