The sun did manage to break through the clouds Wednesday and temperatures shot up into the 40s for the first time since the middle of January. A well deserved mild day after the record setting cold February we just came through. I wish I could say that this spring weather will be with us for a few more days but the fact is we have another shot of arctic air headed our way for Thursday. It will move in during the day while an area of low pressure tracks well to our south. The clouds from the low coupled with the cold air moving in should prevent temperatures from rising much after sunrise. They will start in the 20s and then just stay there even as the clouds slowly move out in the afternoon.
High pressure will build in for Friday bringing mostly sunny skies along with more very cold temperatures. As the high moves off to the east on Saturday slightly warmer air will move in along with more clouds so the day should average out partly sunny. The models have now picked up on a weak disturbance dropping out of Canada and this stands a good chance of bringing us some light snow on Sunday.
