First Warning Storm Team: It’s chilly now, but warmer weather is on the way

Posted at 2:55 PM, Feb 18, 2016

It’s chilly now, but warmer weather is on the way….As we move through this Thursday night, bundle up! Overnight low temperatures will dip into the mid and upper 20s under mostly clear skies. But the chill won’t last long. We’ll start a gradual warm up Friday as high pressure builds over the area and our winds turn from the south. So highs will climb into the lower 50s Friday afternoon. Then, by the weekend, highs will soar into the low and mid 60s under a mix of sun and clouds.  That will all change next week as our temperatures go back down and our rain chances go back up. In fact, highs will be in the 40s and 50s next week. We’re also going to keep an eye on a stalled front over the area, which will likely bring chance for rain late Monday through Wednesday.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cold. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 20s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Friday: Sun and Clouds. A Cool Day. High temperatures in the lower 50s. Winds: NE/SE 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Sun and Clouds.  Warmer. High temperatures in the low and mid 60s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
