Calmer Weekend Ahead

After what was a busy weather day yesterday, it’s now time to exhale. Blue skies and average temperature will adorn a calmer weekend ahead.

Calm but Cloudy Friday

The blockbuster low pressure whose cold front gave us severe storm chances yesterday has moved on out of here…and in it’s wake, calmer conditions.

It will remain windy as the low departs, with winds between 10 and 15 MPH, with gusts upwards of 20-25 MPH. Nothing like yesterday’s gusts but still something to watch.

We’ll still have moisture in the air today, and that means clouds…but fortunately no rain coming from them. These clouds, combined with northwesterly wind, with only allow us to get up 50° for a high.

Clouds begin to clear overnight, with a low near 34°.

Sunshine Returns for The Weekend

Here comes the sun!

High pressure builds back into the region Saturday, meaning sunny skies are back again!

This should also help slacken the winds a bit too, since that dynamic low pressure system will be but a distant memory. Winds both weekend days should stay between 5-10 MPH. Much more manageable.

High pressure keeps skies sunny and northwesterly winds keep us near 50° again on Saturday. Even those light winds slacken off on Sunday, for a high near 55°. Lows both nights drop to around 30°. I’ll very much take that. Peace and quiet…and sunshine.

More of the Same to Start Next Week

Calm start to the third week of March, with temperatures staying near average with mostly dry weather.

More of this? Yes please. (Giphy)

Temperatures during the week will top out in between 53-55°, under mostly sunny skies. Can’t rule out a shower as we head later on through the week, but it’s still a way away.

That just about does it for me! Follow our live weather feed @wxornotbg for the latest on your weekend forecast. Have a terrific Friday!
