As we enter the last week of February, we typically expect temperatures to rise above freezing during the day. Our average high temperature is 40 degrees by next weekend!
Welcome to reality! We’re headed back into the deep freeze, at least by late February standards. Our forecast highs are in the teens and 20s. Low temperatures will fall below zero. The core of the cold air will be in place from Tuesday evening through Friday afternoon. Click here for the 7-Day Forecast.
It will be cold enough that a few long-standing records will be in jeopardy:
- record low temperature on Wednesday, February 26th (-6° from 1994)
- record cold high temperature on Wednesday, February 26th (11° from 1920)
- record cold high temperature on Thursday, February 27th (18° from 1912)
The good news is that our weather will be relatively quiet, in terms of what’s falling from the sky. Late Monday and Monday night, a dusting to an inch of snow is possible. The rest of the time we’ll get to enjoy some sunshine!
