Sawyer County under Winter Storm Warning

Turning out clear and chilly.

But can we expect more snow across our county?

The rain will spread into Friday, with temperatures in the north between 5C and 7C and the south a little warmer at 8 or 9C. In fact, it could be warmer for some tonight than it has been today and every other day this March except for the first day of the month.

For now, I think it's time for a Good Friday to Easter break from the weather blog. Temperatures will fall into the low-to-mid 70s across South MS, and the air will be much drier than the last few days have been. It will still be windy tomorrow with gusts to near 25 miles per hour. Afternoon highs will climb well into the 60s and low 70s Friday afternoon with no significant rain or snow expected.

Forecasters say an unsettled bank holiday weekend with below average temperatures could bring chaos for drivers. If we see any snow accumulations, it's likely confined to elevated and grassy surfaces, but it is possible! Daytime highs will be around 62 degrees with sunny skies and dry conditions. A great looking day for Saturday with lows of sunshine and highs in the 60's. Any shower would be short-lived and not amount to much. However, the warning adds that "it is quite possible that snow might not be too disruptive".

A woman carrying an umbrella in the rain crosses the intersection of 14th and K streets NW in Washington on Wednesday. A High Wind Watch has been issued for winds 30-40 miles per hour and gusts up to 60 miles per hour or more.

Sunrise is likely to be a mostly cloudy one Easter Sunday but at least any showers should be light and scattered throughout the day. In fact, milder air is making a push back at us, offering the forcing mechanism that takes all of that moisture from the surface and pumps it back up to keep the rain going. Rain will turn to snow over the same regions of Tayside and Fife, Grampian and the Highlands as it did on Thursday.
