We’re tracking the return of strong northwest winds today. Expect wind gusts over 30mph at times, although they will be short-lived. In fact, by the time the sun goes down this evening, the winds will relax and become calm. Lighter south winds will help us warm-up tomorrow. High temperatures will burst into the 60s under wall-to-wall sunshine, with that warmer wind direction guiding the balmy weather. Wednesday’s warm-up is just the beginning of even warmer weather still to come…
Speaking of – we’re tracking high temperatures into the middle/upper 70s as early as Thursday afternoon. Yes, you read that correctly. Highs will be some 30° above average in about 48 hours. As promised, the mid-month thaw is on in full force later this week. High temperatures will remain WELL above average heading into the weekend. Expect middle 60s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday. Breezy weather will be around from time to time through this time period. Tie your hair back and enjoy the sunshine.
Early next week, some more seasonal weather will be moving back in with rain chances as early as Tuesday. Temperatures to start the final week of February will be in the 30s and 40s; back down to reality. The fairly consistent overall ‘quiet and tranquil’ weather pattern shows no real signs of breaking. This general trend should continue into March. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
