Sorting out wind, rain and snow timing the next several days

NOW: Sorting out wind, rain and snow timing the next several days

It's a lovely start to the week. But we have big time changes ahead. The rest of Monday features a noticeable northwest wind, but not overly gusty. Temperatures will top out in the upper 40s this afternoon as full sunshine continues.

We will continue the mild trend on temps most of the week, but it will come at a price. Winds back southerly starting tomorrow presenting an opportunity to hit fifty degrees, but at the cost of wind gusts to near 40mph. Rain chances will also be on the increase by the mid afternoon becoming likely by dinner time. Head's up if you plan to head out with your honey for Valentine's Day, you'll want the umbrella handy. 

Notice even under solid rain temps are still really mild by February standards. About a quarter inch of rainfall can be expected with this system. And plenty of wind too. Check it out: 
So the wind machine is turned up most of the week as you can see from this graphic. Even though we dry out for Wednesday, winds will be whipping. Should be another mild day in the upper 40s. Then we track what looks to pose the most hazardous conditions by Thursday. The next potential snow maker moves in and looks to show some promise for accumulating snow.
Pleny to sort out in the days ahead. For today enjoy the sun!
