The week ahead: High pressure provides a stretch of excellent weather

/ March 7, 2021 at 9:24 PM

High pressure will be the main factor in our weather throughout the week, keeping things dry and warming us up to the upper 70s for at least the first part of the weekend.

A freeze is expected inland of Highway 17 tonight, with scattered to widespread frost elsewhere. Be sure pets and plants are protected; if you live further inland, consider dripping a faucet as temperatures could dip into the upper 20s there. Frosty conditions will be possible again on Tuesday morning across much of the area, and a Frost Advisory may be needed.

Otherwise, though, expect temperatures to gradually warm up as the week goes on. High pressure will slip offshore, and the southerly return flow will help temperatures rise into the 70s by mid-week. There will be clouds from time to time, but no measurable rain is expected for several days. Our next chance of rain could come Sunday, but that is even right now at such a low probability that it isn’t mentioned in the NWS forecast.

Enjoy a nice week of weather!
