Tuesday, February 5 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Clouds have been with us today, but it has also been warm and muggy as Key Field has at least tied the fifth warmest February 5 on record at 74. Isolated showers have been ongoing this afternoon and will continue to pass through the area until they fizzle out this evening. A shower cannot be ruled out through the overnight with patchy fog possible, some of which could be dense.

Temperatures remain almost 10 degrees above average through Thursday with highs in the 70s. Our best rain chance will be Thursday evening into Friday morning when a cold front touches off isolated to scattered showers that should exit prior to sunrise Friday.

Friday and Saturday will be the coldest days of the next seven as cold air filters in behind the front. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s on Friday with highs on Saturday in the 50s, and we start off near freezing Saturday morning.

We begin to rebound on Sunday as highs return to 60 with a stray shower possible. Isolated showers return to start next week as highs make a run back towards 70.
