Spring Preview WeekendMarch 2nd, 2013 at 5:52 pm by John Smith under Weather
Saturday featured lots of sunshine and very warm temperatures. Believe it or not, Sunday will be even warmer, especially in the east. The metro will warm to near 70°, but parts of the southeast will warm to the mid-80s! This is all thanks to a westerly flow that will set up. This will also boost the winds in the afternoon. Winds will gust up to 40 mph in the Northern Mountains and Eastern Plains. The metro will see gusts up to 35 mph.
The north and western high terrain has the chance of a couple of showers early on Monday as a weak disturbance passes by. A much bigger storm is shaping up for next weekend. Expect colder temps, more wind, and the shot at some snow and mix next Saturday and Sunday.
