High pressure will keep the main weather pattern, the jestream, just north of our area but the high pressure will not build in strong enough to keep skies clear as we’ll see high clouds pass over our area over the next several days. Temperatures in the afternoon will continue to warm through midweek with most of the week seeing high’s 10-15 degrees above normal! Weather models differ on how far south the jetstream will make it later this week and for now I have kept most areas inland dry through the workweek with a chance for showers at the coast, mountains and perhaps even into north Douglas county late Thursday into Friday. This system will be one to monitor as high pressure may build in enough to keep the precipitation north of our region, but any precipitation that we do see will be light. We have a better chance for more widespread precipitation late Saturday into St. Patrick’s Day as a stronger cold front moves in, but still expecting precipitation to be light.
With spring-like weather to start the week I’d love see any weather photos you have or you outside enjoying the gorgeous weather! Share your photos with me on my Facebook page and you may see them during Newswatch 12 This Morning. Thanks for logging on and have a great Monday!
