February 28: More Rain On The Way



This morning’s dense fog made for an adventurous morning commute, but we’re going to warm up nicely as that fog lifts. Partial clearing will allow temperatures to warm to above 60° in the Triangle, well into the 60s farther to the south…not bad for the last day of February!

The next round of rain will move in this evening and overnight, and Friday will be yet another cool and wet day overall. The North American Model’s radar simulation from 5:00pm today through 9:00am tomorrow shows the scattered showers moving in, and a wet morning commute for most of us:

A little break from the best rain chances around midday Friday will give way to more showers, which will continue into Friday evening and early overnight. Back to the NAM simulation, this time from 9:00am Friday through 5:00am Saturday:Even during that break in the highest rain chances, temperatures won’t warm up much:

Partial clearing on Saturday will help us sneak back up to around 60°, before another round of rain moves in by Sunday afternoon. The heaviest rain will fall Sunday evening and Sunday night, but I think most of the moisture will be gone before the cold air can catch up and give us any snow:I’m leaving a very slight chance of a mixed rain/snow shower in the forecast for Tuesday, but things are looking non-worrisome that day as well. It will be COLD for the first full week of March, with high and low temperatures both running 15°-20° below-average!


I’m doing both weather and traffic again tomorrow, so this is the last batch of nerd-links for the week…
