iOS users: It should be in the App Store in 4-9 days.

Well yesterday’s 62 was a record for that date, smashing the old record of 55. How does it compare to all-time February warmth? 62 is not that high on the list, actually. The warmest February day on record in Youngstown occurred in 2000.

This morning we have a sea of clouds and that will keep temperatures from moving much all day.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND

Quiet! Some sunshine all three days with above-average temperatures….especially over the weekend. Enjoy!

NEXT WEEK

The much-advertised (been talking about this for at least 10 days now) pattern change will get underway early next week. Arctic air will infiltrate the eastern US. As I have mentioned, this air would have more “bite” to it if the Great Lakes had more ice cover but since ice is almost non-existent this year the air can modify quite a bit as it flows over the waters.

Only 5.7% ice cover(!)

Rain and snow showers on Monday as we cool off.

The rest of the week will feature NO big storms but plenty of cold, gusty northwest winds….snow showers and flurries….and mostly minor accumulations. It is possible that some places will end up with a few inches on the ground by the end of the week.

We were all over yesterday’s record warmth starting Monday….way ahead of other sources.
