Grab the coats and be careful early! We’ll start with a few spotty snow showers at high elevations and temps in the upper 20 and low 30s early. Slick areas from snow and/or black ice will be possible, so drive safely! Temps today will eventually make it into the upper 30s/low 40s, but it will feel colder because of gusty winds today. Gusts will occasionally be over 40 or 50 mph. Wind Advisories are out for every county in the viewing area through this morning, and eastern counties will remain under an advisory until this evening. With the wet ground, downed trees and power loss may occur.
The winds eventually lighten up into tonight; we will be chilly and mainly clear with lows bottoming out in the mid 20s to low 30s. Valentine’s Day will be much warmer and mostly sunny with high pressure in control. Highs Thursday will be in the mid-upper 50s for most. Another frontal system looks to move in on Friday, and will stall into the weekend. Multiple disturbances along this boundary will trigger an occasional wintry mix at times through Saturday and Sunday, and into early next week. Highs look to be in the upper 30s to mid 40s through this weekend and into early next week as well. Stay tuned!
