Weather update from WTOC meteorologist John Wetherbee

February 15, 2013 

The weekend will start out with sunshine and cold temperatures.

We are between several weather features anchored by a zone of deep moisture just offshore to the southeast. This area won't really clear as weak Canadian fronts zoom across the country. Then, a stronger Pacific cold front will arrive on Tuesday. All that means colder temperatures. Some offshore moisture will be drawn inland with the passing fronts, but we should stay dry.

Be sure to cover any tender vegetation. There's a slight chance of snow flurries Saturday night, according to one model. Don't panic, but count on temperatures in the upper 20s Saturday night. It won't be quite as cold Sunday night.

We don't expect rain again until Tuesday, which has the possibility of some thunderstorms. Meteorologist John Wetherbee, CBM
