Flurries and colder temps round out the month, March starts warm

Thursday started similar to Wednesday just with less flurries across the area. The chance is still there though, albeit light, to see some early, but better chances for more flurries return later Thursday evening.

Otherwise, we'll see a mostly to partly cloudy day with high temperatures capping off in the mid 20's. The average high for the end of February is 34º but we'll finish the month below that mark.

There is a chance to see flurries again late Thursday into very early Friday morning as a very weak disturbance moves into southern Minnesota through the day. It seems most of the flurries will stay to the west, but we can't rule out conditions that benefit a few forming in the valley.

Any flurries that fall won't add up to much. Wednesday we saw 0.1'' of snowfall from the quick burst in the early morning, but it was gone before we could accumulate anymore. There is another slim chance Saturday morning, but it seems those will be few and far between too.

Looking ahead to March, the forecast is suggesting warmer than average temperatures. It's also suggesting a chance for wetter than average conditions through the first 10-days. As of now, those chances for a wintry mix and snow next week are slim and models aren't agreeing well on where that system will line up.
