Calm winds make us feel warmer along the I-270

I270 Forecast

Morning temperatures were cooler this morning, but without the wind, it makes for a warmer feeling.

Sunny skies on Tuesday with temperatures similar to Monday, but we will feel up to 10-20 degrees warmer as the winds have finally settled down across the region. We will see another chilly night with teens and 20’s across the area with calm winds. Watch for the possibility of fog or freezing fog Wednesday morning. Temperatures will rise into the 40’s Wednesday.

High pressure will swing around returning us to southerly flow Thursday. This positioning of high-pressure will help the area warm up into the middle 40’s late week. It will also draw up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

We are tracking a system for the weekend. A cold front will take moisture from Thursday and Friday, creating more could cover on Friday into Saturday. As the front passes, we have the change for wintery precipitation Saturday into early Sunday. The weather will start as a snow/sleet mix before switching to all rain during the afternoon. Moisture left Saturday night into Sunday will create a snow shower or two, along with a few flurries for Sunday morning.

Temperature, track, and timing will be the three T’s that we will monitor closely as the system draws near. Be sure to stay tuned to WDVM 25 Weather for the latest!
