First Warn 5

Spring delivers an early taste

Posted: Updated:

We may still have a few days to go before we can officially say that Spring has sprung, but our weather has decided that it doesn't want to wait that long.

High pressure over the eastern United States brought another day of mostly sunny skies to the region, and a milder air mass expanded its way across the Great Lakes.

Even better is the news that this weather does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon! That same zone of high pressure will shield us from a cold front draped just north of Lake Superior, and a developing storm system over the southern Gulf Coast.

The two systems will attempt to converge over the next 24-36 hours, but will likely do so just east of our region. This may spill some extra clouds for the early part of Tuesday, but no precipitation is expected.

A new zone of high pressure will quickly regain the upper hand Tuesday afternoon, clearing the skies and keeping our weather quiet through the end of the week.

Our best chance at taking a run at 50 degrees will come on Tuesday, but highs are expected to at least reach the low 40s through the start of next week. Plus, there do not look to be any substantial chances for any precipitation, be it rain or snow, through that same timeframe.

Stay alert for potholes in your travels this week, and stay vigilant if you live in close proximity to any creeks or rivers. Snow melt over the next several days could lead to some flooding in low-lying or poor-drainage areas.
