A Winterlike Last Day of the Winter Season

Following a bitterly cold start to our Friday, sunshine and warmer weather returns to the Tri-State.

Posted: Mar 18, 2021 6:43 PM

After seeing some peeks of sunshine and an afternoon high of 62° in the River City just after 12PM, overcast skies returned and so did the cooler temperatures - in fact, the mercury is expected to plummet overnight to its lowest point in nearly two weeks. Isolated rainfall passing south across the Tri-State this evening will exit between 10PM and 11PM followed shortly after by the remainder of our lingering cloud cover overnight, leaving us with the combination of clear skies and a blustery northerly wind flow early Friday morning. Friday's morning low of 33° will be our coldest recorded in the River City since the morning of March 7th; worse yet, wind chill values may dip as low as 20° in some spots!

While our breezy northerly winds are expected to stick around though our Friday ahead, we're still looking at a somewhat pleasant end to the work week. Crystal clear skies and high temperatures peaking at and around the 50° mark will make for a nice, albeit crisp, end to the Winter season. Spring officially kicks off Saturday with the annual vernal equinox and it will certainly feel springlike - afternoon highs will reach 60° for many of us and Sunday looks even nicer! We'll wrap up the weekend on a high note; expect a high near 64° with crystal clear skies Sunday!

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
