918 AM EST Monday, February 20, 2017
Unseasonably mild conditions will remain in place for the next
several days as southerly to southwesterly flow influences our weather
pattern. Overall dry conditions remain for today before a weakening front
enters the basin Tuesday morning. Rainfall amounts with the system look
minor with most receiving under a quarter inch. In the wake of this system...
mild...dry conditions will persist before a more complex system approaches
for the tail end of the week. Model inconsistencies lead to some issues with
timing, but second half of the week is a safe bet. Model agreement is present
in noting that a cooler, more seasonable airmass will move in behind this
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The risk for flooding remains very low for the first half of the week. We will
have to watch the late week system to see how it evolves before determining if
any potential is present.
