Sunday, March 11 Overnight Forecast

Adjust Comment Print

Highs on Monday will be very similar to what we saw Sunday, topping out in the low 40s in most areas with a stiff northwest wind gusting to 25 miles per hour or more by late Monday.

Slick spots will develop overnight, but with some sun and temperatures near 40 degrees on Monday, the impact on area roads should remain rather minimal for most, especially if they've been pretreated. A few sprinkles will be possible in Eastern Kentucky for Wednesday and Thursday, with a wintry mix possible for Friday. We will have some occasional showers through the weekend.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with lingering breezes as temperatures drop into the mid-20s in the outer suburbs to low to mid-30s in the city. The sky will stay mainly cloudy with temperatures falling to near freezing. Sunshine will be the main feature in our clear sky today. It won't add up to much, with only light accumulation possible. However, as shown on the map below, most areas will only get a dusting.

Same story for Wednesday - scattered snow showers all through the day. Temperatures will be at or slightly above normal, and by the weekend, highs will climb into the mid 40s.

St. Patrick's Day Saturday is still more on the cool side, with partly to mostly sunny skies as highs reach the 40s. Tuesday and Wednesday's daytime highs will only be near 60, although both will be sunny days.

By Friday the southerly flow will push even more clouds over Acadiana and a few scattered showers.

Spring officially begins next Tuesday, March 20, at 12:15 p.m. with the arrival of the vernal equinox.
