Weather Words: February 14

No cold hearts today, but maybe some raindrops instead?

Happy Valentine's Day!

As far as days in February go, today could be MUCH colder and snowier. Instead, we're in for mostly cloudy skies as a weak storm system moves through the area. This storm is running into a bevy of dry air, which in turn is eroding it and the showers associated with it. We may see a couple of light rain sprinkles between now and late afternoon, but most places won't even see a hundredth of an inch of rain.

Skies will clear tonight as the storm system moves to the east. Look for sunshine and mid 50s on Wednesday. Come Thursday, a more potent system will move into the area, bringing measurable rain for everybody in central Virginia. We return to the sunshine for Friday and the coming weekend as temepratures drop into the upper 40s by Sunday afternoon.

In case you're wondering, the warmest Valentine's Day in Charlottesville was back in 1951 when the daytime high reached 76°. Today's high will be roughly 25 degrees cooler, but still above normal for this time of year. Then again, with the way this winter has gone, should we be surprised?

3, 2, 1, fade out.
