Typical March Weather through Next Week

After a week of well above normal temperatures and 2 weeks of well below normal temperatures prior, we are now heading into an average March pattern. The jet stream is currently running directly from west to east, and will hold its own over the next week. This feature usually brings near average weather to the Midwest, and this March will be no exception. The attached image is the temperatures compared to normal over the next 1 to 5 days off the CFS model. The next five days look very similar, before cooler weather works in late next week. As for precipitation, the Midwest looks to stay very dry, with minimal threat for large rain or snow events in the foreseeable future.
