Weather Words: February 23

Enjoy this dose of spring-like weather before temperatures cool this coming weekend!

And the warm winter continues!

Warm air in place will lead to afternoon highs in the 70s today. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds, though a storm system to our west may toss a few stray showers into our skies after noontime. There will be more in the way of showers overnight as the storm system moves through the area. Then, we're in for big changes in our weather.

Friday will feel a lot different than today as colder air presses into the region. Temperatures will hit their peak in the upper 60s before lunch, then fall during the afternoon. It will become very windy with potential gusts up to 40 or 50 miles per hour. Saturday and Sunday will remain dry, though afternoon highs will settle in the lower 50s. That will be a lot lower than recent days, yes, but much closer to our seasonal normals.

For what it's worth, our record high for today is 75° set back in 1986. We'll come close, but likely fall just short. Also, a VERY early reminder that Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 11. That's when we turn clocks ahead and lose an hour of sleep.

3, 2, 1, fade out.
