PM Update: A fantastic final February weekend

Today’s storminess is history and we can enthusiastically anticipate a pleasant, worry-free weather weekend. Temperatures are well above normal and we’re precipitation-free until late Sunday, in all likelihood.

Through Tonight: Winds gradually slacken and skies complete their clearing process, currently underway. Lows are chilly (but slightly warmer than average), ranging from the upper 20s in the colder suburbs to the low-to-mid 30s downtown.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Both weekend days look good, but this is the pick of the two. Skies are mostly sunny and arctic air is absent, helping temperatures take a nice ride to around 60 or even into the low 60s. Winds are from the southwest around 10 mph.

Tomorrow night (Saturday night): Mostly clear early, with some high clouds increasing towards morning. Lows range from near freezing in the colder suburbs to the upper 30s downtown.

Sunday: Clouds increase and I can’t rule out a sprinkle or shower by late in the afternoon, especially in western areas. Highs range from 53-57.
