Taste Of Spring Next 10 Days


What a stellar mid-February day with plenty of sunshine and highs recovering nicely in the 30s.

Clear conditions this evening set the stage for a six minute International Space Station fly over from 6:46pm-6:52pm. It begins in the northwest horizon and disappears in the east-southeast horizon. Enjoy and don't forget to say hello to the crew.

Chilly again tonight in the teens but we're still advertising a significant warm up this week. Under a sky mixed with sun and clouds Tuesday, temperatures creep into the 40s. The trade-off with the mid-week warm up will be overcast, foggy, and at times damp conditions.

Wednesday will be gray with areas of dense fog, drizzle, and steadier showers developing Valentine's Day evening. Temperatures slowly climb into the 50s toward sunset and a steady south-southwest keeps them there into Thursday morning.

The warmth this week peaks Thursday afternoon/evening in the upper 50s/lower 60s but comes with steady rain and possibly some thunderstorms. A quick jab of cold arrives late Thursday night into Friday with steady temperatures in the lower 30s. The cold creates a transition from rain to a period of snow early Friday too.

This air mass quickly modifies heading into the weekend and we're expecting another string of days in the 50s Sunday into next week.

In fact much of the next two weeks looks to be above to much above average and possibly several days in the 60s next week too. But the pattern is also conducive to be wet and above normal precipitation is also expected which ups the risk of flooding by late next week. Stay tuned - Sean Ash
