The week ahead: Unsettled and warm to start, calm and chilly for the weekend

/ February 23, 2020 at 10:44 PM

Our seemingly standard Winter 2020 pattern remains in force this week: A warm, unsettled start to the work week gives way to a cooler, drier weekend. Before it’s all said and done, NWS expects another inch of rain or so on top of the 4.04″ that has fallen in this wetter-than-average February. The best chance of rain is overnight Monday into Tuesday, with some lingering showers possible early Wednesday. A cold front will knock temperatures down several degrees below late February norms by Thursday, and we may ring in the start of meteorological spring (March 1) with a freeze in the morning. All in all, just another standard week in what passes for winter in this part of the world.
