A Wonderful WeekendAfter a cold front plowed through the eastern half of the U.S. in the first half of our week, high pressure has moved in to take things into a more picturesque direction. Sunny skies and comfortable temperatures have control over the area for at least the next 36 hours. There will be some passing high and “fair weather” clouds, especially on Saturday into Saturday night, but no precipitation is expected from them.

Showery with storms to start the weekThis warm and moist flow off the Gulf will help enhance the chance for precipitation to start your work week. With an approaching system out of the Rocky Mountains, rain and thunderstorms over Texas will shift east into the Mid-South late Monday and into Tuesday. The greatest chance of rain will come on Tuesday, with Monday seeing increasing clouds and a scattered chance for showers.

Once this next system pushes through to start the work week, skies will start clearing up with some moderately warm temps too. Partly to mostly sunny skies are expected for Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the mid 60s.
Heading into the Ides of MarchHeading into the middle of March, we’re anticipating above average highs and above average precipitation. Beware of the ides of March? Perhaps mother nature will get all the rain out of the way early, allowing March go out like a lamb!
