March is coming in like a lion.
Following a February where the region experienced near record snowfall, the forecast for early March includes less precipitation but bitter cold.
According to the National Weather Service, Sunday’s high is a mere 6 degrees, with lows over night expected to reach 10 below zero.
With windchill factored in from Northwest winds of around 15 mph, it can feel as low as minus 21 degrees.
Monday is not going to be much better.
A high of 9 degrees is projected for Monday, with windchill values as low as 25 below.
As the middle of the week approaches, the weather service forecast shows temperatures slowly creeping into the teens, and a high of 21 degrees on Wednesday.
But with those slightly warmer temperatures comes a chance for precipitation.
Thursday calls for snow, likely in the middle of the day.
The snow could turn to rain on Friday and Saturday as the temperature may break freezing. The high for Saturday is currently projected to be 36 degrees.
