Latest Storm Tracker Forecast by Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:

We have made it to the end of another weekend here in the Capital region and even though it was a huge change in temperatures from Friday we all made it through, some of us even managed to pick up measurable snowfall! March can be a crazy month!

It took a good chunk of this afternoon to get it, but we finally were able to break out in sunshine late this afternoon and into the evening which will lead to mostly clear skies to start the overnight period. A weak area of low pressure will continue south of us through tonight into the first half of tomorrow as high pressure is shielding us from any effects from that.

However, as high pressure begins to move east into Monday late morning and early afternoon a boundary to our north will begin to sink south.

So after a start Monday morning with sun and clouds I think we will see skies cloud up through the afternoon hours.

We aren’t expecting much from this boundary by noon time, besides just an increase in cloud cover.

It’s not until near dinner time Monday evening that we may see a few rain or even snow showers try to be wrung out as the boundary passes. Not everyone will see them and those that do won’t see much.

This is going to bring in a reinforcing shot of colder air as we go into Tuesday with temperatures once again stuck in the mid to upper 30’s. 

But we will rebound as the first day of spring is on Wednesday and we are expecting temperatures in the upper 40’s to near 50. Another system looks to bring cooler air by Friday into Saturday but all indications are pointing at another significant warmup late next weekend into the start of the following week!

Have a great week!
