Clouds build back as a storm system rides through the southeast and off the coast tonight. Temperatures were feeling good today in the mid 30s but will fall back to the mid 20s.
We are back to colder temperatures. Clouds will be with us for much of the day. The early to late morning hours could see a few light snow showers or flurries as we get clipped by the low of the coast. Clouds will try and break up later in the day. Morning lows in the mid to upper teens while afternoon highs will be much chillier in the mid to upper 20s.
Friday the clouds will break up more allowing sunshine but they don’t clear to later in the day. Morning lows near 10 will start the day and we only rebound to the low 20s by afternoon. Arctic high will provide clear skies and calm winds which will cause temperatures to plummet to the single digits. Plenty of sunshine for the last day of February but highs only warm to the upper 20s. February 2015 looks to be the coldest February on record and may be one of the top five coldest months of all time. By Sunday, the upper level pattern shifts the trough more to the west a bit allowing for ridging and a milder flow. Temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 30s for Sunday.
There is a threat for showers and possibly a mix overnight into Monday as our next system takes shape. Showers will not linger long as they are expected to move out early Monday morning. We should enjoy high temperatures in the low 40s. Tuesday another system tracks towards the area late bringing showers in the evening but most of the day remains dry with highs in the upper 30s.
