February 28th, 2013 Forecast

A gradual, slow descent in temperature is expected over the next few days after today's mildness.  Breezes will increase and become the general "big story" for the weekend around the region as a chilled cat of March weather enters the picture. Not quite a lion, certainly not a lamb in tranquility standpoint, but it will be a crisp start to meteorological Spring this weekend.

Tonight features a mix of clouds and stars and a reasonably decent night overall.  A shower or two is possible late tonight around the region, with the best chances along the coast as a weak wave of energy tracks up the coast.  Lows will generally be in the 30's, perhaps near 40 along the Shore.

Thursday features variably cloudy skies with a shower or sprinkle around through the day. It won't rain all day but with upper level energy approaching the region and that weak surface wave moving up the coast a few showers will dart the landscape.  Highs will range from 46 northwest to the lower 50's southeast of the city.  Winds will nudge to the west and increase a bit...won't be overly windy but there will be a bit of a breeze around.

Breezes increase and continue through the weekend, with temperatures stepping back each day through the course of the weekend.  We will probably top out only the lower 40's on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday in the city, with some spots possibly not getting out of the 30's for highs on those three days.  While the weather will be dry for the weekend, it will be cooler than average as a stretch of generally cool weather continues.
