I hope you are enjoying George Washington's Birthday! Though it's been rather cloudy/foggy, at least the temperatures aren't too bad. We will continue warming this week, to even near record highs, before cooling into Friday. As far as the planner for the remainder of the day today, cloudy skies will persist with isolated to scattered rain possible. The best chances will arrive this evening and into the overnight.
Looking ahead, a frontal boundary will stall out across the area, allow for the focus of moisture to be nearby. As such, repeated light shower activity will be possible each day. More or less, showers will be on and off but remain generally light in nature. Towards Wednesday night into Thursday, a last push of the boundary will allow for cooler conditions to fall into place by Friday but another disturbance enters our doorstep bringing continued rain chances again into the weekend.
Further out in time, the CPC predicts our very mild winter to continue. This look comes late February into the first week of March, where above average temperatures are expected to continue. Paring this with the rainfall outlook, near normal to slightly above normal is forecast.
Overall, the pattern is an unsettled one. There will be numerous shots for rain this week, fortunately activity will be light and scattered in total. This means flooding/flash flooding potential is very low. That said, if a few thunderstorms do develop Wednesday, we could see locally heavy rainfall within them. Thursday will be our best shot to see some sunshine along with the most limited rain potential.
