Ups and Downs Continue, Rain Chance Lingers
We begin the last day in February with temps that may not even dip below the 70 degree mark. If you didn't get a chance to get outside in the warmth yesterday, you'll have another shot today as highs reach into the mid 80s with mainly sunny skies. Like yesterday, we can't rule out a stray shower or storm in the forecast. Also like yesterday, most, if not everyone, will remain dry.
March starts with cooler weather! We'll be watching a cold front roll through in the overnight that will give us a shot at mainly pre-sunrise rain and an isolated thunderstorm. We don't look to get above 70° for Wednesday, and the bottom will fall out after dinnertime, so you may want to have a jacket with you. We remain seasonable through Saturday morning.
We're still keeping an eye on weekend rain chances. At the moment, scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm look possible with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Stay tuned.
