We will come close to a couple more cold weather records over the next 24 hours. First, a record low high temperature this afternoon.
RECORD LOW HIGH FOR TODAY: 15°
FORECAST HIGH FOR TODAY: 15°
High pressure building in will bring us lots of sun today, and we expect dry weather this afternoon. Tonight, skies will remain clear, and we will come very close to another record:
RECORD LOW FOR SATURDAY: -3°
FORECAST LOW FOR SATURDAY: -2°
With all the talk of record cold, you would think we would be at the end of one of the coldest Februaries on record! You would be correct!
While we will be frigid today through tomorrow, it does not look like we will be cold enough to crack the top 3. And going into a new month on Sunday, we will get into a warm up:
BUT it will be very lion-like on Sunday morning, because it will still be cold enough for snow. And as moisture moves in Saturday night into Sunday, we do expect to see some snow accumulation! So if you need to be out and about early, be prepared for a messy drive, with at least a couple inches of snow possible. We will warm enough the the afternoon to see snow mix with and then change over to rain. Highs reach the upper 30s. Back to snow as we cool off Sunday night, and then most of Monday will be dry.
On Tuesday, moisture returns to the area, and in the morning we could see a brief period of freezing rain before temperatures warm above freezing. Tuesday may actually feel like Spring to you, as highs climb into the mid-40s, and we could see periods of heavy rain! I would not even be surprised to hear a rumble of thunder. Flooding would be a concern, too, as the snowpack will rapidly melt. Stay tuned to the forecast as we head into a very active pattern!
