The warmest day of #FakeSpring is upon us, with highs expected to top out in the low 80s away from the beaches, which will remain much cooler under the influence of water temperatures in the 50s. The NWS forecast high of 81° would be a new record for the date.
Our abnormally warm start to February continues today under mostly sunny skies. We reached 73° at the airport yesterday and look to top that today, with a high of 75° in the afternoon. It gets even warmer from here, too.
We are getting off to a rather chilly start this morning on the southern periphery of a significant Arctic blast of cold air. While we may be starting in the upper 20s, at least we are in the upper 20s above zero — can’t say the same for our friends in the Upper Midwest.
