Salisbury saw a bit of light rain late yesterday afternoon, however it didn’t register in the rain gauge. That means that the third of an inch of rain that we received on the first day of March represents our total, thus far, for the month.
No rain is expected today under cloudy skies with temps in the mid 50’s. That means that we head past St. Patrick’s Day having experienced a 16 day drought.
The drought will end over a couple of turbulent days beginning on Thursday. We will see temperatures rise into the 60’s with plentiful rain and even a thunderstorm.
While the South deals with severe weather over the next couple of days, the East will be getting their fair share of rain as well!

By the time the cold front exits our area on Friday temperatures will drop considerably as the rain continues into the day, perhaps ending as snow just prior to Spring’s arrival on Saturday.
The high temperature on Friday will occur near or just after midnight. Temps will plunge throughout the day. Combined with very windy conditions Friday has the potential to be an ugly day.
