8 Years of Past 53 Have Had Highs Below 30 In Late March………Update On Forecast

March 19th, 2013 at 10:24 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Since 1960, we have had only 8 years with high temperatures below 30 in late March (March 18-31).  This data is from the Purdue Agronomy Farm COOP station.


As of 10:25 p.m. it still appears strong Alberta Clipper may bring 4-6″ snow to parts of Missouri (perhaps even far northern Arkansas) Thursday-Friday with 1-2″ as far north as far southern Illinois.  It still looks to stay southwest of here, though it will likely bring some high clouds into our area.

Rain showers are a good bet Sunday, changing to snow showers Monday.  There could be significant snow north of here in Iowa, southern Wisconsin & Michigan (band of 6-12″ possible).  If this storm track shifts farther south, it would be more snow than rain here.  We will continue to watch it.
