Weather - March On


March On

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A high pressure system settling in briefly for Friday will close this last full month of winter on a tranquil and relatively mild note. Overall, February averaged over 4F a day warmer than normal this time around.

March will begin with yet another surge of moisture, associated with a low pressure system tracking from the South towards eastern Great Lakes. A cold front will then approach on Sunday: More showers are expected before clearing and cooler weather makes a quick appearance in our area early next week.

Today: Partly to mostly sunny in the wake of a cold front passage. Northerly winds will gradually become onshore as the high pressure drifts overhead. Midday highs in mid to upper 40s (79C) before cooler sea breezes set in near the coast.

Tonight: Clear early, then slowly increasing clouds. Cool, with lows in the mid 30s (23C).

Saturday: Becoming mostly cloudy as the warm front comes through from the south. Southeasterly winds turning to southwest and strengthening. Showers arriving in the afternoon. High near 52F (11C).

Sunday: Partly cloudy and mild, with some more showers likely. Highs 5560F (1315C), lows in the 40s (59C).
