A dry stretch of weather continues into next week

/ March 5, 2021 at 9:39 PM

I don’t remember the last time the seven-day forecast was so calm. High pressure remains in control, which means little to no rain chances and steadily warming temperatures into the 70s by the end of next week. It’s a worthy reprieve from what’s been a soggy start to 2021 so far.

Saturday will be a bit on the cloudy and cool side, with highs topping out in the mid-50s with peeks of sun becoming more frequent in the afternoon. Sunday is my pick day of the weekend; despite temperatures remaining well below normal, there will be plenty of sunshine, and the March sun angle will hit a little differently than, say, January.

From there, a warming trend will commence, and by the end of next week, temperatures look to be running a few degrees above normal in the mid-70s.

The only weather concern of note will be the potential for frost and freeze conditions each morning starting Sunday through Tuesday. If you’ve planted, be ready to protect that sensitive vegetation and make sure your pets have a warm spot to be.

Enjoy the weekend!
