Happy President's Day! For those of you that had the holiday off, I hope you had a good and relaxing day. Today was another beautiful and well above normal day temperature wise. As I alluded to yesterday, the week ahead is looking quiet, with the exception of tomorrow. Let's jump in.
Tomorrow may be the only day we see precipitation the rest of the week, as a disturbance passes well to our north. You know what that means...rain. While there may be a few flakes on the front end of this system as precipitation move in during the morning, we're expecting virtually all rain. This will be a quick mover, and certainly not a washout of a day, but it will be useful to have your umbrella handy. The rain should move out during the overnight hours.
The cloud cover may linger a bit, but Wednesday is looking like the start of a decent dry period. The thing that will be noticeable will be the temperature changes. Unlike our warm period (well, really the entire winter) we should see temperatures drop off as we get a cool shot. Thursday and Friday look like the coldest days, with highs struggling to reach freezing. It will likely be breezy as well, with northwest flow filtering in the cold air.
The period continues to look quiet, as I expect dry conditions and moderating temperatures. By next week, we're probably following our next system, but looking at the long range I am inclined to believe that any hope of significant wintry conditions will not visit us until we've reached March.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with rain showers. Highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. Chance of rain 80%.
