When we turn the page on the calendar to March, there is a strong indication that the weather will continue to be much more reminiscent of January. Here’s the latest National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center’s 8-14 day temperature outlook for Feb 28 through Mar 6. Those very dark blue colors over our region are indicative of very high probabilities of solidly below average temperatures that week. For reference, average highs are in the lower 40s and average lows in the low to mid 20s that first week of March.

For today and Friday, sunny and a high of 37 and 40. By Friday night, light drizzle after midnight, low 31. Saturday windy and mild with rain likely, high 45. Then Sunday very windy, much colder with snow showers, high 28 and wind gusts to 40 mph.
