We tied the record high on Thursday, reaching 61 degrees! The warmest day so far this month and this year. We may not reach 60 degrees on Friday, but we remain mild for February standards.
A westerly breeze develops tonight as the front exits the area. Winds of 5-15mph will be common throughout Friday with highs in the 50s.
Behind this system, temperatures cool down a bit for the weekend, but highs will still be in the 40s. A weak coastal low will stay offshore for Saturday, but a secondary low will develop and could hug the Mid-Atlantic by late Sunday. Recent model guidance shows most of this rain stays to our south, however, a few showers could reach our southern tier counties of Adams, York and Lancaster counties.
A look ahead to next week shows unseasonable warmth continues with highs in the 50s, and perhaps a day or two reaching 60 degrees. Feeling more like spring than winter.
