Trending quiet and mild looking ahead

Overall, our weather pattern will continue to trend quiet and relatively mild for this time of the year.

Look for clouds to continue overhead this evening/overnight, keeping us in the lower 20s waking up President’s Day morning. We are dodging the first of two Clippers Monday, with the second scooting farther to our north Wednesday into Thursday.

This second clipper will draw up the southerly breeze ahead of it, and with a broad ridge building in higher up in the atmosphere, this will lead to our mid-week warmth; 50s look very reasonable for highs on Wednesday.

Temps will relax a bit Thursday and Friday behind this Clipper, however our atmosphere is going to be starved for precipitation once again. Right now the dry pattern lasts into next weekend, with highs looking to return to the middle and upper 40s.

Have a great week everyone!
