Mother Nature’s heart is cold this Valentine’s Day


DISCUSSION:  We bring in Valentine’s Day with our coldest day of the week. High pressure is finally back in control this afternoon, which will help us see some sunshine return. Despite this, we will stay very cold from start to finish. Highs will be stuck in the upper 20s and low 30s throughout the afternoon and overnight lows will be even colder as they drop into the teens. This is really the only winter-like day we have in the 10 day forecast at this time.

Staying cold despite sunshine today.

Saturday will bring temperatures closer to average in the low 40s. We are looking quiet and sunny. Sunday looks a bit warmer with highs in the upper 40s.

Temperatures rebound this weekend.

Rain could be back in the forecast at some point this weekend. Some models have us dry, while others a bit of a rain snow mix through on Sunday. Either way, we are looking at much more dry time than wet time as a whole. This is great news as we need consecutive dry days to help lower some of the streams, creeks and rivers.

We look to start the work week off on a dry note. Showers do return by Tuesday however. We could even see a few showers very late on Monday night. Another batch of heavy rain is possible Tuesday. Wednesday looks to feature a few lingering flurries behind that system before starting to clear out, and the remainder of the week looks quiet at the moment. Temperatures also look to remain above average through much of next week.

The rest of February is looking fairly mild and above average. Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an early spring for the second year in a row. As of right now it looks like he may be right! We also look very active as we need to keep rain chances in for much of this week.
