Tuesday, March 27, 2012

-The week ahead, dry start, then rain and cooler temperatures.
-Last week, wet start, warm and dry finish.
-Weather data for March 17th - 23rd, 2012.

The week ahead warm, then more rain, cooler than normal late week,

This week, started with a dry weather pattern, with what are actually near normal temperatures for March. It just felt very warm compared to the past 5 months. 

We have three major storm systems moving through this week to end our nice weather. These are mostly going to be rain storms. Tuesday morning is the first storm, it is expected to bring steady rain shortly after midnight and last through the morning commute hours. Afternoon will bring scattered showers. Beyond that we will see showers off and on until Wednesday night/Thursday morning area where the second storm system moves in bringing back more steady rain and slightly cooler temperatures. A short break Thursday into Friday will occur before a third system will move through, mostly effecting Friday evening into next weekend with more rain and cooler temperatures.

Last week:
-The weather has stabilized a little compared to the previous two weeks. We still got a decent dose of spring rain at a total of 1.02 inches for the week.
-The week ended with a warm Friday, breaking a high temperature of 56.3ºF. However not as warm as February 7th, 2012, at 59.2ºF at 1 PM. I will say the last time we broke the 60ºF mark was October 19th, 2011, at 12:48 PM with a high of 60.1ºF.

Weather data from March 17th - 23rd, 2012:
High temperature: 56.3ºF (Friday)
