Call me crazy, but I felt a hint of spring on this rather chilly February day. Why, you ask? Just standing outside with clear and calm conditions, the strengthening influence of the sun was evident. We are on the good side of the equinox folks. And although this winter has been pretty tame, I for one am looking forward to the return of T-shirt weather in a mere few weeks.
Through tonight: Should be a pretty sunset tonight with high level clouds seeping into the region in the early evening. In general, clouds will be on the increase overnight, though I suspect the first part of the overnight period will be mostly clear given how dry it is. Mostly cloudy skies after 2 a.m. Lows will range from 24 to 30 degrees with a light south wind at 5 mph.

Tomorrow (Sunday): Cloud cover will be at its peak tomorrow morning as a weak storm system passes well to our north. We should see some clearing by the afternoon, leading to partly sunny skies. Temperatures should reach the mid-40s to near 50 depending on how much sunshine we see. Winds remain from the south at 5 to 10 mph. Partly cloudy tomorrow night with low temperatures ranging from 28 to 34 degrees.
Correlations and Causations: From the “correlation does not equal causation” files, a company called RiseSmart has found that of the two cities playing in the big game, the team whose metropolitan area has the lowest unemployment rate has won 26 of the past 35 Super Bowls. So who has the lower unemployment rate between Atlanta and Boston? As of November 2016, Atlanta’s unemployment rate was 4.8 while Boston’s was 2.4. So yeah, take that for what it’s worth.
