February 20: Near-Record Warmth, Daily Links


Unseasonably warm weather is in store throughout the upcoming week, beginning with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s this afternoon:

Partly cloudy skies today will give way to increasing clouds tonight, and a good chance of rain by late Tuesday.  The RPM model’s radar simulation shows the best chance of rain arriving in the evening and overnight:
rpm-3p-tue rpm-6p-tue rpm-9p-tue rpm-12a-wed rpm-3a-wed rpm-6a-wed

Showers remain possible Wednesday and Thursday, but it’s just a slight chance — temperatures will still reach into the 70s each afternoon:
We’ll be close to record high temperatures today, Wednesday and Friday:

Warm and breezy Friday, before a cold front sweeps through Friday night.  We could get some strong storms along that front Friday evening — the Storm Prediction Center has outlined a risk of severe weather just to our north:
