General Forecast:

Becoming mostly sunny north, and increasing sunshine south.  Cold.  Highs 10 to 15 north, in the teens to around 20 south.   Winds winds light, becoming northwest less than 10 mph. 

 

Brief Discussion: 

Although we have a cold start to the day, increasing amounts of sunshine, and relatively light winds are setting us up for a pleasant, albeit, mid-winter's spell to close out this frigid month of February.

High pressure covers much of the US and southern Canada east of the Rockies, another arctic airmass with sub-zero readings extending from here southwest to northern Missouri. This high will gradually track east through the Ohio Valley, reaching the Jersey shore Sunday morning, delivering increasing sunshine today, a clear, cold night, and more sunshine tomorrow. High pressure will keep the winds relatively light in the valleys, while a steady west to northwest breeze persists across the higher terrain.

Things begin to change Sunday, as the high moves east, and developing low pressure moves out of the Colorado Rockies, spreading increasing clouds Sunday, and then snow later in the day through Sunday night, with a few inches expected, tending to be a bit more south than north. It gradually clears Monday into Monday night, before the next storm Tuesday night and Wednesday brings snow, possibly mixing or changing to rain.

 

Mountain Forecast:

The summits today will see increasing sun north, becoming partly sunny south, remaining cold, along with moderate northwest winds.   On Saturday, sunny skies will prevail, temperatures moderating a few degrees, and winds brisk from the west.  Sunday's outlook features increasing and lowering clouds, with a chance of snow west and southwest later in the day.  Winds turning to the southwest, temperatures much more seasonable.
