WEDNESDAY: Our Wind Advisory won’t go into effect until later this morning, but we’re already seeing winds start to pick up this morning. Those strong southerly winds will help usher in warmer air, with temperatures making it into the low to mid 60s this afternoon. Our next round of rain will be moving in later this morning and into the early afternoon hours. We’re not expecting any severe weather with this batch, but we could hear a rumble of thunder or two. That rain will taper off into the evening, with sunshine possible before the sun sets.
TONIGHT: The winds won’t be quite as strong overnight, but we could still see gusts reaching 30 mph out of the south, which will keep temperatures from dropping off too much tonight, only into the low 50s.
EXTENDED: Winds will keep up into Thursday, as a cold front moves in. Those winds will slowly shift from a southwest to a more northwesterly direction throughout the day as the front works through, and gusting at times around 50 mph. This slow transition will hold off the cooler air until Friday, with highs only making it into the low to mid 40s. We rebound quickly heading into the weekend, with a calm weather pattern taking hold once again. Temperatures make it to the middle 40s Saturday, and all the way to the mid 50s on St. Patrick’s Day. Those more spring-like temperatures stick around into the first part of the work week. Check back with ABC 17 News for the latest forecast on-air and online.
