Colder start to March with early flurries possible

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - March overall comes in like a lamb, but a few flurries could fly to start the day.

METEOROLOGICAL WINTER RECAP
December through February make up "winter" though astronomical spring doesn't start until March 20. For record-keeping purposes, we group these three months together.

Despite how mild winter began, our bitterly cold February caused our average temperature to fall 2.5° below average. In fact, this past month was the 12th coldest on record!

Interestingly, liquid precipitation (including snow if it was melted down) was also below average, but snowfall for the season was a few inches above average. This was due to our last several snow events being fluffy and dry--easy to compile, but not much liquid in it.

FORECAST
As a quick-hitting clipper moves in, a few flurries are possible in the morning, especially for central and western Wisconsin. A few of us could see up to a dusting, but nothing more.

As the trailing cold front pushes by, our winds shift from the northwest causing colder temperatures.

Once the flurries clear, we'll see partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 20s.

Tonight will be the coldest of the next week falling to the mid teens.

Winds turn from the southwest on Tuesday causing temps to jump to the low to mid 40s, however, it'll feel cooler with winds gusting up to 35 mph.

Pleasant, bright and very mild with highs in the upper 40s Wednesday.

A dry cold front will knock temps back to the low 40s on Thursday under partly sunny skies.

Partly sunny in the mid 40s Friday with another clipper developing, possibly causing a light rain and snow mix by later in the evening and overnight.

Partly to mostly sunny Saturday with a high around 40°.

Mostly sunny to end the weekend in the low to mid 40s.
