DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 14-18)
In comes rare (for this winter) blast of cold air today into Saturday, but without really strong wind and with the sun angle as it is in mid February we won’t feel the sting that we’d feel with more wind, or earlier in the season. Still though, it will be quite cold in comparison to a good part of the winter-to-date. We quickly moderate Sunday and early next week with a weak front producing only the slightest risk of a passing snow flurry Sunday. High pressure brings fair weather for Presidents Day Monday. Low pressure tracks north of the region Tuesday with a warm front / cold front combo bringing the next chance of precipitation, probably a minor mix with the warm front and rain showers with the cold front.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 25-32. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts. Wind chill below 20 at times.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 0-5 most interior areas, 6-11 most urban and coastal areas. Wind diminishing to calm.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 25-32. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 13-20 evening, rising overnight. Wind SW under 10 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of a snow shower. Highs 35-42. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY (PRESIDENTS DAY): Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 18-25. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Early sun the clouding over with a period of rain/sleet/snow possible midday then a chance of rain showers following that. Highs 42-49. Wind S to SW increasing to 10-20 MPH.
DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 19-23)
Windy, dry, seasonably chilly February 19, then fair and milder February 20-21 as high pressure slips to the south of the region. Potential for unsettled weather later in the period.
DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 24-28)
Still low confidence here as we may have to watch energy from 2 branches of jet stream energy for potential interaction. Can’t rule out a couple storm potentials.
