The beginning of the week will be wet and dreary. Unfortunately an ice storm is expected mid-week which will inevitably cause power outages and tree damage. Ice Storm Warnings will have to be issued. The good news is that sunny skies and warmer temperatures will arrive just in time for the weekend.

Sunday, 3/18: Rain. Some snow may mix in. Rainfall around a quarter inch.
High 39. Low 33.

Monday, 3/19: Cloudy with light rain and snow.
High 35. Low 32.

Tuesday, 3/20: Windy with drizzle.
High 34. Low 32.

Wednesday, 3/21: Freezing rain. Ice accumulation a tenth to a quarter inch.
High 32. Low 29.

Thursday, 3/22: Freezing rain. Ice accumulation a tenth to a quarter inch.
High 32. Low 29.

Friday, 3/23: Overcast in the morning, but becoming mostly sunny during the afternoon.
High 40. Low 30.

Saturday, 3/24: Mostly Sunny.
High 47. Low 30.

Perhaps your place should make like Patricianopolis and have all the power lines located underground - aside from the potential for downed trees blocking roads, ice storms are no problem for my hardy folk .

It's certainly an investment that will have to be considered by the local government. But unfortunately the city is running on a lean budget due to the economic crisis. Issuance of debt will be very limited for the time being.

I understand, and I will say your people are in a different spot than the denizens of my climate. Underground power systems were essential given the harsh climate with strong windstorms, blizzards, and ice storms being a regular occurrence. For them it was either spend the money to bury the infrastructure or have the whole grid destroyed every few months . I doubt your place has that level of severity on a regular basis, so there's more room to cut corners.

Makes the most economical sense. Battering wind, rain, snow, and ice storms aren't uncommon in my climate, but they're not the norm either. Wind gusts over 50 MPH only occur a few times a year. Your climate is probably a bit more extreme.

On another note, I calculated the data for March 2012 and it looks like it'll be one of the warmest March's on record. Funny how I created the forecast several months ago and here we are today in the US experiencing record breaking warmth. The daily highs this month in my climate aren't exactly record breaking, but it's the consistency of having highs 5-10 F above average and lows even warmer.

In fact, my climate is a lot more extreme. Wind gusts over 50 mph are almost a weekly occurrence, with dozens of such storms in an average year. Hurricane-force events are more notable, averaging 1-3 events annually. Gusts over 80 mph do not occur in an average year, but do occur in some years. And that's just synoptic wind - other conditions also apply, including but not limited to heavy amounts of wet snow (though powder is the rule), strong derechos, ice storms, and blizzard conditions.
