Our nice stretch of weather will continue for most of this week into the upcoming weekend. Many of you are not minding the short sleeves weather, with temperatures running about 10-15 degrees above average for the rest of the week.
It will be a bit cooler tonight, since we’ve had a weak cold front move in earlier today.
But with plenty of sunshine on Tuesday and a south wind returning, temperatures will climb back into the 70s during the afternoon.
There is an upper level disturbance in the Gulf of Alaska that bears watching for later this week.
At this point, it looks like it’s going to stay too far to the north and east of us to bring us any rain. That’s bad news, becuase we really need the rainfall. However, there will be a good chance of severe weather in the Midwest and Deep South on Thursday and Thursday night. But we are forecast to remain dry.
It should get colder again by next week, probably by next Monday night. Temperatures are below zero in northern Alaska. That cold air will be bottled up until the pattern changes again next week, allowing a strong cold front to move through our area. No ice or snow with this, as it looks now.
So enjoy the 70s while there here. We’ll dip into the 60s for highs briefly on Friday, but even that is above normal for late February.
