WEATHER:

  • Get ready for ANOTHER day with afternoon temperatures soaring into the 80°s. We're starting out, once again, in the lower 70°s under partly cloudy skies, along with areas of patchy morning fog. We’ll be looking at a few scattered showers later in the day, but only 30% coverage, with breezy southeast winds and a high of 84°. The RECORD high for February 22 is 87°, which was set in 1925. Overnight, a few isolated showers are possible and the low is forecast to stay in the upper 60°s. Friday, we will see increasing clouds and the rainfall potential is 60% coverage of showers and isolated thunderstorms. The high temperature will stay in the lower 80°s.
