Unseasonably warm weather continues; storms by week's end

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  We certainly won't break any records, but our afternoon highs will still be way above average.  We should be in the low 60s for the middle of March.  We will be well into the 70s through next week.

For today, the big ridge of high pressure off the east coast (Bermuda High) will continue to pump in the warm air while at the same time blocking any weather systems from moving into the area.  The result is a high of 77 today with partly cloudy skies but no chance for rain.

Thursday the high pressure will begin to relax it's grip a bit.  That will allow for clouds building through the day with a slight chance for a passing showers.  It will still be warm with the high reaching 75. 

Thursday night into early Friday morning a front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area.  By the time you wake up Friday morning there still may be a stray shower or two, but most of Friday will be cloudy and warm with a high of 76.

Over the weekend it will stay cloudy and warm.  Highs will remain in the mid 70s, and both Saturday and Sunday we will see a few stray showers here and there.
