Rain today and chilly end of week

The highly variable weather over the last week as we moved into meteorological spring is very characteristics of this transitional season; a pattern that will continue. Warm temperatures the last few days have melted most of the snow we received on Friday. Today should be even warmer, with highs reaching the mid 50°Fs, due to southerly winds and warm air advection ahead of an approaching cold front. Unfortunately, this approaching cold front also means rain today and tonight. The cold front will move across our region tonight, with the rain tapering off by daybreak tomorrow. Tomorrow, temperatures will continue to be mild before the colder air behind the front moves in to make for a chilly end to the week.
