Mild temperatures and sunny skies ahead for the week
Craig — March has made a quick transition from lion to lamb, with mild temperatures and clear skies expected to continue throughout most of the week in Craig.
Highs are predicted to hover in the low to mid-fifties through Saturday, with nighttime lows near 20 to 25 degrees.
The temperature could peak Wednesday with a high of 57.
Though sunny skies will likely reign supreme most of the week, National Weather Service meteorologist Norv Larson said one weather model suggests the possibility of light precipitation Thursday.
“A little bit cooler and showers towards the end of the week is what the model seems to be hinting at,” Larson said. “It doesn’t look like anything particularly strong, but it’s a change from earlier in the week with pretty mild and dry conditions.”
Larson explained that there is currently a high-pressure ridge over the west keeping things dry for the time being.
“We’ve got very dry air over the mountain west,” Larson said. “It’s going to hold off any weather systems coming through.”
With daylight savings time now in effect, Craig residents can use that additional hour of daylight in the evenings to enjoy the warm temperatures while they last.
