More clouds, wind, yet still warm Wednesday

The storm system that’s been battering the west coast with heavy rain the past few days is making progress to the east. While it will be making an impact on our weather starting Wednesday and lasting into the weekend, we aren’t going to receive nearly as much precipitation as they have out west. Clouds and wind will be on the increase Wednesday, and even with a lack of sunshine, highs will be back in the low- to mid-50s Wednesday afternoon.

A few showers are likely Wednesday night into Thursday morning, followed by more rain through Thursday. While Thursday will be cloudy with rain, temperatures will remain very mild for February, again reaching record territory in the low-50s.

Cooler air will begin moving into the region Thursday night as the storm system departs to the east. Temperatures will top out very early Friday with daytime temperatures in the 30s. A few flurries are possible through the day Friday, but no accumulating snow is expected. From Friday on, high temperatures will remain in the 30s. That’s quite a bit cooler than we’ve felt lately, but still above average for this time of year.
