Saint Joseph’s Day Sunshine Winter Ends Spring Begins Saturday Quiet Weekend
Happy Saint Joseph’s Day to all and be sure to head to your favorite Italian bakery for some zeppoli. This is the last day of winter and we have seen rapid improvement from last night’s weather system which played out according to plan. Hardly anything happened with regards to a change over to snow at the end. This never had the support for anything substantial. Now we move on to quiet weather conditions though we do have gusty northerly winds today and chilly temperatures in the upper 30s to lower 40s. At least we have sunshine.
Clouds are lingering to the south across the Mid Atlantic states and we should see those clouds move further south as the day wears on. Some leftover precipitation is in Eastern Virginia and that should pull away to the east. We have nothing to worry about radar wise through the weekend and into Tuesday.
High pressure moves overhead tonight and Saturday so we should see clear skies tonight with most lows in the 20s. Saturday should be a nice day of sunshine. Highs should be back up into the 50s. Sunday should be a nice day too with sunshine. Highs will reach the upper 50s to lower 60s in most places though it may be a little cooler along the coast especially those areas with south and east facing shorelines.
Next week presents some interesting issues that show up in the spring time. The high goes out to the east but it is not going to be in an ideal spot to warm things up. Onshore flow issues will develop which means clouds and temperatures that will be cooler than they otherwise would be. Highs will likely be in the 50s with some sort of an east wind. Some lower 60s will show up inland. Then we have low pressure heading to the Great Lakes that brings some showers up from the south late Tuesday into Wednesday. Another system could follow late in the week. Winter may be over but spring is not exactly a nice time of year.
