ROCKFORD (WREX) — The Stateline gets a taste of all seasons this weekend, from sub-zero conditions to sunny and warm, all within 24 hours. We foresee calmer conditions in the coming week.
The temperatures we’re seeing today are near the record range for March 12 and are about 20 degrees below average. Temperatures have struggled to warm up to the low 20s and will continue to cool into the 20s to upper teens tonight. Thanks to a northwesterly wind we are seeing wind chill factors in the tens to single digits today.
Tonight windy conditions will calm down and clouds will begin to return over the stateline. Temperatures remain cool to 20 degrees in the upper teens. We could wake up on Sunday morning with a blanket of snow from the night hours.
It’s that time of year again when the world skips ahead an hour. It’s just another sign of spring and summer as Daylight Saving Time begins tomorrow.
As a reminder, don’t forget to change all analogue clocks and change your batteries in smoke detectors!
With summertime starting tomorrow, we’ll soon be getting a little more sun in the evening!
Sunday remains sunny and nearly 30 degrees warmer than Saturday due to a change in wind direction and a change in weather pattern. Temperatures will climb into the low 50s on Sunday and remain in the high 50s to 60s for the coming week.
Clouds return on Sunday night and temperatures drop back into the high 30s but warmer conditions are ahead.
We see a calm pattern for the upcoming work week. Temperatures remain near the mid 50’s, with some clouds overhead.
Temperatures could climb into the low 60s by mid-week and will stay there for the rest of the week. The sky will remain partly to mostly sunny.
Cloudy skies and a low chance of rain return for the stateline at the end of the week.
