Soon, if it doesn't get warmer, I'm going to have a hard time getting outside. Not because it's so unseasonably cold, although it is. But rather, because people are fascinated (angry) with how persistently cold it has been through the last two weeks. "Colin, do you think we will see some spring weather? I'm ready for warmer conditions." I ask Meteorologist Eric Davis the same thing every day. j
Of course things are going to get warmer, perhaps just in time for the Easter weekend. But between now and then we are stuck between two systems: a low exiting the Mid-Atlantic States and high pressure over the southern Great Plains. For us that means we are embedded under strong northwesterly flow, and will be so until the weekend. So in spite of the very sunny conditions our high temperatures will struggle into the mid 50s.
Saturday and Sunday the before mentioned high pressure moves overhead and temperatures are finally allowed to warm up – well at least – rise back to normal with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
