Winter weather tonight and Saturday will give way to temperatures more typical for late March by early next week. With the warmer weather will come periods of rain and possibly a few thunderstorms.

As long as this nasty stuff stays south, Spring will be on it’s way.  We should be clear around the time March for Our Lives steps off at 11:00 am.

So far all those models you keep hearing about say that this storm will pass to our south. I say it can move either way. But we definitely will not get the brunt of it as we here in the Region typically do. Let the folks down south have a taste of some of this nasty winter stuff for once.
