Feb 27, 2013: Clouds, Showers Persist Through Friday

[notice]Note: Updates tonight and tomorrow will be brief. The next full discussion will be posted on Friday.[/notice]

Tonight – Weekend: Gradually Warming Up

As the upper level low gradually continues to move away from the region, partly to mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers will persist through Thursday and Friday, with highs warmer than average, peaking in the mid 40s to low 50s on Thursday and low-mid 40s inland, mid-upper 40s for the rest of the area on Friday. Highs will gradually trend slightly cooler over the weekend as skies clear and a strong trough moves through the region, with highs on Sunday down into the upper 30s-low 40s inland and low-mid 40s for the rest of the area, generally near to slightly below average.

Next Week Overview:

Similar temperatures to those of the weekend will continue into the early-mid week, possibly slightly cooler with overnight lows generally in the 20s for most of the area. The next potential for a storm is towards next Tuesday-Wednesday; currently, most models keep this storm south of the area aside from the ECMWF, although this is still nearly a week away with additional changes expected with the model guidance, and the potential remains for a storm to affect the region, possibly including the area, in this time frame. More information will be posted as details become clearer.
