Get ready for ANOTHER day with afternoon temperatures soaring into the 80°s. We started out, once again, in the lower 70°s under partly cloudy skies, along with areas of patchy morning fog.

We're looking at a few scattered showers on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar, 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, with a low finally falling into the upper 60°s.

Friday, clouds will be increasing, so will the rainfall potential, as 50% - 60% coverage of showers and isolated thunderstorms is forecast. The high is expected to be in the lower 80°s.

By Saturday, a 40% - 50% rain coverage will start off the final weekend in February, with a high of 82°. Our next "weather maker" will come in the form of a cold front that is expected to slide into our area early Sunday morning and then stall along the coast, lingering into the early part of next week. So, as it stands right now, the forecast is for "rain likely" both Sunday and Monday, but it will be "cooler," with daytime highs both days in the low/mid 70°s.
