Few stray showers likely through the afternoon Saturday, with the main action picking up along a frontal boundary that will sag into central portions of the state by late afternoon.
Temps will surge ahead of the front along with warm wind gusts topping 25mph at times out of the southwest. Highs will reach the lower 60s upper 50s for some, but once rain starts to ramp up across the state (between 4-5 p.m.) temperatures will take a tumble.
More rain and some rumbles of thunder leading into Saint Patrick’s Day Sunday, with temperatures only climbing into the 40s. Overall, looking at a dreary, soggy end to the weekend and things won’t improve much by Monday. Towards the north, could even see a few flakes laying down a light coating for some. No major accumulations expected at this time.
By Monday evening, some areas could pick up on a total of between 1.5” to 2.5” of rain before it’s all said and done.
An infusion of milder air heads our way to jump start the week, leading to more strong thunderstorms, some of which could reach severe levels. Wind will be the main threat with storms that develop.
