The workweek began on a bright, sunshine note. With the sun, temperatures once again cruised way above "normal" levels for this part of the month of February. For many of us, temperatures will be even warmer for the next couple of days, but the sunshine will be replaced by some rain.
Some of us may get through Tuesday morning's drive drive dry, but periods of generally light rain look to be a good bet. Even so, temperatures should be able to push easily into the 50s Tuesday afternoon with a southerly breeze prevailing.
Some heavy rain will be a possibility Tuesday night with some rumbles of thunder not out of the question. We will be keeping an eye on it, but right now it looks like rainfall amounts could easily top the one-inch mark by Wednesday morning.
While some rain will linger on into Wednesday, some snow may mix in as the day wears on. Before that happens, however, high temperatures should push well into the 40s, with the southern parts of the ABC12 viewing area possibly sneaking into the lower 50s. Temperatures for the end of the workweek will return to seasonably colder levels. - JR
