Here we are starting Meteorological Spring and it feels a bit more like February.{} The jet stream is dipping to our south allowing cooler Canadian air to usher into the area and stay there through mid next week.{} So, expect highs to remain in the 40s.{} In addition to the coolish weather, the upper air pattern keeps us with a fair amount of cloudiness.{} Today will be a lot like yesterday, with more clouds than anything else, but a few breaks at times with sunshine and even a few cloudy periods that could squeeze out a sprinkle or flurry.{} The end of the weekend should bring a bit more sunshine, but Sunday and Monday will be the coldest of the bunch with highs in the low 40s.{} Upper 30s will be likely North and West of the metro.{} If you're looking for a warm up, NOAA is predicting our area will see above average temperatures for March, April and May.{}


{}{} We have equal chances of having above or below average precipitation.{}{}


Snow lovers, there may be some hope for you yet.{} An area of low pressure will develop in the Southeast next week.{} But, it's still uncertain what kind of impact it will have on us.{} At this time, there are equal chances of some snow, rain, or a miss altogether.{} Stay tuned to ABC7 and the Stormwatch Team for updates as the storm gets closer.
