Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

March may come in like a lamb on Tuesday. But we have more wild temperature swings on the way and several chances for rain, maybe even a few snowflakes.

A weak cold front is crossing the region today. That will drop our temperatures a few degrees on Tuesday. Expect highs in the mid 60s for most of us.

But the big drop in temperatures comes behind another cold front on Wednesday. That cold front may bring a few showers for your Wednesday morning commute before the skies clear in the afternoon. Expect highs on Wednesday in the mid-to-upper 50s.

Our coolest day of the week will be Thursday, with morning lows near freezing and high temperatures in the afternoon only in the mid 40s, despite plenty of sunshine.

More wet weather moves in overnight Thursday and into Friday. Some areas could even see a few wet snowflakes mixed in at the onset. Expect high temperatures on Friday only in the upper 40s.

The weekend isn’t looking terrible, but certainly not as mild as this last weekend. We will see highs near 50 on Saturday with a mixture of clouds and sunshine and into the mid 50s on Sunday with partly cloudy skies.
