    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain

    Friday marks the first day of March, but try telling that to Mother Nature. Winter won't be leaving without a fight, as the cold air that's already in place will be reinforced, and then reinforced some more!

    The current forecast has highs in the 30s and 40s by Sunday into early next week with lows in the 20s.

    The next seven days will be the coldest start to March since 2015. The average temperature from March 1 - 7 will be 41.1 degrees (highs and lows combined, based on the 10 Day Forecast below). This will make it the coldest stretch in four years, a period during which the normal temperature is 54.4 degrees.
