Now that we are into the second half of February I usually like to look for more Sunny days and fewer cloudy wet winter days. We just had a week of relatively Spring like weather but that was more of a anomaly. Today will be a true late winter harbinger of Spring to come. Clear sky and mild but still feeling kind of cool, especially in the morning and evening. I haven’t seen any Buttercups around here, maybe I just haven’t been careful enough in my observations but I’ve missed them so far, I hope the drought last year didn’t have to much of a negative effect on them or maybe the Global Warming is messing with them……It was a mix of clouds and sun here all weekend, a lot of people thought it was cold but actually on average I think we had a decent weekend, the warm spell distorted peoples perception I guess. Today looks Sunny and may be the most Sun we get all week. Wind holding from the North will keep our High temperature below 50 but we will get close. Low tonight about 25 under still clear sky so look for more frost, we had a pretty nice coating this morning as well. Wind shifting Southerly on Tuesday ushering in about a 10 degree warm up and some clouds. By late Tuesday or early Wednesday rain and maybe a Thundershower. Not nearly as much fuel with this next system as the one last Wednesday so it doesn’t look like any severe weather unless something major changes things. Now for the facts for Monday.

We had .01″ of rain in the gauge Sunday morning and just a Trace observed for this morning.

The Temperature at 7:00 is a cool 27 degrees. Actually about average for a mid February morning. Look for 49 degrees today and back down to 25 tonight.

Barometer is 30.30″ and Steady. Good stable pressure today and maybe starting to fall a bit tonight but not enough to cause any problems for the next 36 hours or so.

Humidity is 75%, that as well is about average for this time of morning.

Wind is North at 2 mph this morning. Look for 5 to 10 and holding northerly today. We will see a shift at some point late today or early Tues,

Sky is mostly clear and will be Sunny all day.

The summary for today, Sunny and seasonal temperatures of 49 degrees Cold tonight and 25 for a low. Warmer on Tuesday with a few clouds. Have a good day, we are one day closer to Spring.
