With the massive storm system that churned across the county this week still moving across eastern Canada, we’ll still feel the effects of its wind field at least through Saturday. Winds will continue out of the west at 15-20 mph, with gusts 30-40 mph, especially in the higher elevations. There’s still a chance at some lake effect snow through Saturday night with the colder air and wind, but overall the atmosphere will be dry enough to keep these limited. St. Patrick’s Day looks dry with some sunshine and seasonal temperatures before another shortwave approaches. Once again, the atmosphere will be rather dry, keeping precipitation fairly limited overall. Look for some spotty snow showers early Monday morning, eventually turning over to rain as we warm through the day, and a mostly cloudy sky to begin the new work week.
Extending out through all of next week, we don’t have any major storm systems to worry about. High pressure sets up for both Tuesday and Wednesday as we kick off spring, with very seasonal temperatures. Clouds will increase on Wednesday, as another weak shortwave with spotty rain/snow showers will pass by into Thursday. Temperatures remain the same, and actually continue to warm, headed into next Friday with a partly cloudy sky.
