Monday’s weather featured plenty of bright sunshine on the last day of February, which happens to be the 29th day of the month in this Leap Year. Other than the strong wind gusts from the northwest, conditions are pleasant this afternoon with thermometer readings in the 60 to 65 degree range. Readings will fall through the 50s and into the 40s overnight as somewhat cooler and drier air overspread the region. Lows by Tuesday morning will bottom out near 40 degrees. During the day on Tuesday we can expect a good amount of sunshine and it will remain mild, although cooler than today with highs in the 50s. Meanwhile, low pressure moving to our west on Wednesday will bring a round of showers and scattered thunderstorms to the area. The system will clear out of the area by Thursday, but another system may impact the region by the end of the week with some rain or snow. Earlier today, some computer forecast models were indicating the possibility of accumulating snow in the region by Friday morning, but the latest model runs have suppressed and weakened the system considerably.
