Strong Winds Possible Thursday

Weather Update – 10:00 p.m. – Wednesday

It’s been a wet Valentine’s Day and that makes now 12 out of the last 18 years with rain on this holiday! Only a few showers are left before rain becomes more isolated overnight. The warm weather continues tomorrow before another cold front arrives on Friday with a potential for strong winds in between.

Temperatures will only be in the lower 60s at the coolest point of the night with a slight chance for a stray shower or two. In fact, temperatures will be warming up overnight with southwest winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

It’s going to be a warm day tomorrow with high temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s during the afternoon! It won’t be nearly as wet as it was today but there’s still a slight chance for a shower in the morning under otherwise cloudy skies. It’s a bit unusual for us to go this far in the beginning of the year without reaching 70°F. On average, our first 70°F day of the year is January 30th based on data from the last 30 years.

Winds will be strong at times on Thursday with a potential for wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour afternoon and evening. It’s possible that with gusts even that strong, that trees being loosened by all the rain could fall in some areas. Isolated power outages are possible. A cold front will come on Friday with temperatures falling through out the day so don’t expect the warm weather to last very long.
