PUBLIC FORECAST EXPLANATION
ISSUED: 03/02/2015 0434C
Warmer air will be gradually working its way northward over the next 24
hours especially tonight. There is considerable light rain, drizzle, and fog this morning as moist
and warm overrides the shallow cold air layer. This is going to persist for much of the day, with
temperatures holding in the 40s.
The arrival of the warmer air tonight means that temperatures may actually go up then,
with highs tomorrow afternoon well into the 60s. Showers should continue.
Our next Arctic front arrives around dawn Wednesday, with falling temperatures and
continuing shower and thunderstorm chances. The thunderstorms look to be nonsevere.
The thinking of the cold layer Wednesday night could result in a change-over to wintry
precipitation, starting out as freezing rain and then perhaps getting a bit of sleet mixed in before
it ends Thursday morning.
Thursday and Friday should be cool and precipitation-free. The next weekend storm
system is still something of a question mark.
At 4 a.m. today, temperatures are running from the middle 30s to middle 40s, and winds
are light northerly. RKP
