A NEW RECORD HIGH FRIDAY
A new record for the date was set as early as noon Friday with the temperature reaching 72°. Not only does it break the record of 71° set in 2000 but also marks only the second February ever to produce multiple days in the 70s. The last one was also in 2000.
Friday also marked the 8th straight day of temperatures above 60-degrees - a record streak for February and has now brought the tally of 60-degree plus days in the month to 10!
It's been 15 straight days of above normal temperatures and the recent incredible warm spell has elevated Winter 2016-17 to the 13th warmest ever to date. February 2017 currently sits atop of the records as the warmest February to date and warmest in 135 years!
It will feel over 50-degrees colder Saturday morning as February makes its triumphant returns. Sharply colder air will roar into the state on gust northwest winds early Saturday morning. Wind chill temperatures will lower into the teens early Saturday with temperatures hold steady in the mid 30s through the day. Occasional flurries along with a few snow showers are possible through noon.
