Big changes in our weather over the weekend as temperatures drops from 70 degrees Saturday to the 20s Sunday night with snow showers developing.

We get back to partly sunny skies from Tuesday through Friday, with temperatures warming back up from 50 degrees Tuesday, increasing to 68 degrees by Friday. I think we will be back to 70 degrees by next weekend.

We go back on daylight savings time at 2:00 a.m. March 8. Spring begins in less than three weeks, and the days are getting longer.

AccuWeather forecasts a normal to slightly above-normal number of tornadoes in 2020 with a range of 1,350 to 1,450. That range is close to what occurred in 2019 and 5 to 15 percent more than the U.S. annual average.
