First Weekend of March Outlook

Dry and Cool

Weekend Update

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A northwest wind flow will keep temperatures near or a little below average for the first weekend of March. Brisk during the day and near calm overnight.

Just a few high, thin clouds overhead as a southern storm system stays well away from our region.

Our fair weather friend, high pressure will keep our weather pattern dry for many more days. As that high moves east on Monday, our wind flow will turn more to the south. This will usher in warmer, more spring-like conditions beginning next Tuesday.

Tracking the progress of a slow moving front due in late next week. Right now, it’s over the Pacific Northwest. Any rain chance may hold off until next Thursday night.

Tree pollen will also begin to increase later on next week as the temperatures rise.
