Balmy for February

It wasn't record warmth today but it sure felt nice for mid February. The warmth persists through the rest of this week with the record high for tomorrow in jeopardy. So does the overall "more clouds than sun" theme. While a stray shower isn't out of the question most days the next best opportunity for widespread appreciable rainfall is Sunday.

Thanks for a great run, selling 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendars. You can still buy 2018 of course, but we are already setting our sights on 2019--look for the Photo Contest in February.

Discussion

Balmy for February

Dear Plants,

It will get cold again, please stop.

A robust high pressure ridge in the Western Atlantic doesn't get flattened until the beginning of next week. It's responsible for the warm, moist southerly flow making it feel like late March around here. The broad brush approach is for remarkably warm conditions. However, temps are a little tricky as those who stay socked-in underneath the cloud cover won't be nearly as warm as those who see even a touch of sunshine. Either way it's shorts weather.

Showers threaten each day through Saturday in the rich southerly flow, though many of us stay dry after today. A front comes through Sunday bringing widespread rainfall to western NC. That's the day the tide starts to change.

The front slows as it approaches the coast so we'll keep the mention of a few lingering showers Monday, primarily in the morning. Tuesday is solidly dry- finally. The beginning of next week is cooler, not cold. Colder air is poised to return about 10 days from now

Sincerely,

Mother Nature
