This winter has been anything but ordinary. We suffered through a barrage of snowstorms and brutally cold temperatures.
Just as pitchers and catchers report to spring training, winter is about the throw us another curveball.
Mid-February is known for some of the harshest winter conditions but this week will bring us six continuous days of sunny skies with temperatures approaching, and possibly passing, 60 degrees.
Temperatures will most likely fluctuate throughout the remainder of winter, but it appears that the steadfast five-plus days of sub-freezing temperatures are over. This will make it much more difficult for massive snowstorms to hit our area like they have numerous times dating back to the post-Christmas blizzard.
Valentine’s Day will start the week off with sunny skies and temperatures well above 50 degrees. This positive trend will continue throughout the remainder of the week.
There are three more potential storms throughout the remainder of this month on Feb. 21, 24 and 27. Our forecast will have information on those storms during next week’s update.
Until then, have a Happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy the February warm-up.
