I'm a CMU Honors student and love meteorology and extreme weather. I've been fascinated by weather since I was 5, and plan on becoming a meteorologist

This forecast period has a crazy temperature swing that resembles a March-like pattern. An unusual set-up for this time of year closes today. Our weather has been dictated primarily by a ridge sitting over our area. This has caused temperatures to rise into the 40s and 50s which has eliminated most of our snow pack. This is expected to change as a system will move through here with rain Saturday night and mix precipitation Sunday. A cold front will cool temperatures back down into the 30s. The work week will feature relatively quiet and cool conditions besides a possible clipper system Wednesday into Thursday. Hopefully we can get some cold air to move in and stick around for the rest of winter.
Saturday: Partly cloudy and very warm, near-record high temperatures. Chance of rain 20% and chance of snow 0%. The high will be near 60F. Winds should be 5-10mph.
Saturday night: Skies should be cloudy with rain moving in. Winds will be steady at 10-15mph. The temperature will be around 39F. Chance of rain 80% and chance of snow 0%.

Have a great night/morning and I'll have a new forecast next week. I'm working on my TCR's at a slow pace due to being busy and sick over break. When I get time after mid-terms some more steady work should resume on them.
