Today's Weather: Chilly But Dry

I didn't like Monday. I usually don't mind the rain. It's good this time of the year and it helps things grow. But I didn't like that it was also cold and raw and damp. Tuesday will be an improvement, but it's still going to be chilly.

Any morning clouds or snow showers will depart early, leaving us with increasing amounts of sunshine. Expect temperatures between 40 and 45 degrees in the afternoon, which is still close to 10 degrees below what you'd expect this time of the year. Nevertheless, March is going out like a lamb.

Wednesday also looks like a nice day, and it will be a little bit milder. I do think we'll see increasing cloud cover towards the end of the day as the next weather system approaches.

It does look to me like there's going to be some showers sometime Thursday. That should come to an end Thursday night, leaving us with a cool but slowly improving forecast for Friday. I do think clouds may hang quite tough along the coastline on that day.
