So far most of the weather through March could be summarized as sunny and cool. Finally it looks like a little break in that pattern through the week ahead. This weekend will continue with the cool trend as east winds off the lake hold temperatures in the upper 30s for both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday our inland areas will likely tap the low to mid 40s, but this is still below average. The bigger changes develop through the week ahead.
Monday will bring an increase in the cloud cover with rain showers developing late in the day. Temperatures Monday will be much closer to average, topping out in the middle 40s. By Tuesday rain showers will continue and with temperatures climbing to the middle 50s, we could even hear a few rumbles of thunder. Partly cloudy skies will finish off the rest of the work week with temperatures slowly stepping down from near 50 on Wednesday to the upper 40s on Thursday and eventually low to mid 40s next Friday.
