THE WEATHER DISCO:
.
Mid 70’s on Wednesday…some folks saying to warm…too quick…what do you think? Thursday…still very pleasant temperatures with sunshine giving way to increasing clouds…interesting weather set up coming into play…a large western system will come over the Rockies and lose punch…but becomes the kicker for a low pressure to rise out of the Gulf of Mexico..tracking just about due north…almost like a tropical system would act…but not a tropical system. This will bring a boatload of rain our way…especially late Thursday night and all day on Friday… coming to an end late Friday night… 1 to 2 inches of rain possible. The system pulls away late Friday night early Saturday morning…with clearing skies on Saturday…upper 50’s and nice Sunday…partly sunny and low 60’s. Still on the table..the drum keeps beating for a boatload of cold air…thinking around March 21st for the release over the eastern two-thirds of the nation…hold off those early gardens.
