Temps will rebound; cold, snow could return for weekend

News-DemocratMarch 12, 2014 

Snow flakes were falling in the metro-east at dawn Wednesday, blown on strong wind gusts of up to 39 miles an hour.

But, thanks to warm ground because of high temperatures near 80 on Monday and Tuesday, the snow is melting as soon as it hits the ground and no accumulation is expected.

According to the National Weather Service, the flakes are expected to end around 10 a.m. as the temperature climbs to a high of 39 degrees and skies become partly cloudy.

The low Wednesday night will drop down to 20. On Thursday it will rebound to 59 degrees, which is about normal for this time of year. Skies will be mostly sunny.

Thursday night the low will drop to 37 and on Friday it will peak at 63 under mostly sunny skies. But there is a 30 percent chance of snow Sunday morning.
