    Forecast: Stubborn Clouds to Start Monday, Sun Returns Later

    Tonight: Clearing out. Lows in the mid 30s.
    Monday: Sunny. Nice. Highs in the mid 50s.
    Tuesday: Sunny. Pleasant. Highs around 50.

    (Published Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018)

    The final three days of February look dry, sunny and mild. It’s been a fairly wet month with above average precipitation. Most of that precipitation falling in the form of rain, not snow. In fact, snowfall for the month is running below average – just off one inch below normal.

    Clouds clear out Sunday night.

    Monday will be sunny with high temperatures in the mid 50s. More sunshine will follow on Tuesday with a high temperature of 50 degrees. Wednesday looks to be warm and sunny with high temperatures in the mid 50s.

    All eyes are on a potent coastal storm by the end of the week. The forecast models keep shifting back and forth. In one run, it shows heavy snow. In the next run, it’s a miss, and in the next run after that it is heavy rain – yikes! It will be a headache of a forecast, but there are some details we’re confident in.

    The storm will be “stuck” to our east. With very little forward movement, that will mean strong, onshore winds for several days. This persistent flow, coupled with astronomically high tides and building seas could lead to significant coastal impacts.

    If you live on the water, we are concerned about the high tides late Friday morning and around lunch time on Saturday. At this point, just have a plan in place for minor to moderate flooding.
