Friday, February 8 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Friday! Temperatures are much colder out there this morning thanks to the cold frontal passage last night. A few leftover showers will be possible before sunrise; otherwise, expect a dry Friday with partly cloudy skies and breezy conditions. Temperatures this afternoon will struggle to make it to 50 thanks to strong northerly flow. More clouds will build in tonight as an upper-level disturbance moves on through with lows in the mid-30s.

Another chilly day will be in store for our Saturday as highs only look to make it into the low-50s. We will be back above average for Sunday with rain chances also returning. Only a stray shower or two will be possible on Sunday, so most of us will end up staying dry. Also, any shower that does form on Sunday will be light and short-lived.

Monday will likely be the warmest day of the next seven, with highs making it into the 70s again as rain chances look to increase. A cold front will then move through on Tuesday, which will bring our best chance of rain. We’ll have to watch this one closely for any severe weather threat, but for now it is way too early to pinpoint a specific threat, if there is even one to begin with. Cooler air will filter in behind this frontal passage, but not nearly as cold as today’s and Saturday’s cold frontal aftermath.

To recap changes made from my forecast yesterday, I have bumped up low-temperatures for tomorrow morning because of breezy conditions and mostly cloudy skies. These conditions tend to favor warmer temperatures at night. It now also looks like Monday will be the warmest day of the next seven as opposed to Tuesday because I am a leaning on a solution of the frontal passage being Monday night/Tuesday morning.
