Greensboro, NC -- March has arrived and when you might expect temperatures to rise, they will in fact do the exact opposite.
The normal high temperature for the first few days in March is 57 degrees with the normal low temperature at 36 degrees. Unfortunately for those seeking at least 'normal' conditions you may have to wait a while.
A persistent northerly flow will continue to usher cooler air into the Triad through the weekend. Additionally, a relatively weak upper level disturbance currently over Kentucky and Tennessee will swing through the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic late Friday night into Saturday.
This upper level disturbance will be greatly starved of moisture and will only bring a few sprinkles or flurries to the Triad through the first half of the day on Saturday. Otherwise, conditions will remain generally cloudy and cool Saturday with high temperatures only in the middle 40s.
As the disturbance pivots to the east Saturday evening the sky will begin to clear through Saturday night. With a clearing sky temperatures will steadily drop into the upper 20s by early Sunday morning.
The sunshine will return on Sunday, but with the continued supply of cold air out of the north temperatures Sunday afternoon will only manage to climb into the middle 40s once again.
Another storm system is expected to move into the Triad next Tuesday and Wednesday. This storms system will bring a chance of showers at first on Tuesday and then changeover to snow Wednesday. The details of this forecast are greatly dependent on the track of the storm system which will become more clear over the weekend.
