1. North Carolina
Minimum Temps (note the new numbers for Friday, Feb 20…colder than Thur, Feb 19): AWIS NC Feb 13-20
Latest SkyBit for Clayton (received at 5:15 pm this evening): You can see we are definitely NOT dealing with the kind of cold extreme on Monday morning that was in the forecast just a few days ago. That’s a great thing! The new wrinkle is this 2nd arctic blast coming Wednesday night, and reaching all the way into the following weekend possibly!

6. Maryland: AWIS MD Feb 13-20
COLD OUTLOOK for Mid-Atlantic through March 14th
by Dr. Jay Schlegal (courtesy of Bob Rouse)
Temperatures through March 14th are expected to continue to average below the long
term average. For the upcoming 30 days, temperatures should be 4-8 degrees F below
normal and some days may be as much as 15-25 degrees below average, especially
this weekend and next week. All in all, the majority of days will have below normal
temperatures with the exception of a few mild days preceding cold frontal passages.
Precipitation amounts should range from about 75 percent of normal well inland to
100 percent of normal along the coastal areas as most storms should pass by offshore
or go to the north of us.
Possible precipitation events for the next two weeks:
The first event should be a snow event from northern Maryland northward. The second
event may be mostly snow with some rain in southeastern most areas. The third event
should happen mainly in southern areas and be in the form of snow. The fourth event
could be a snow event in the north and rain in the south.

Final note: I think I’d rather be going back to Ventura next week than Niagara Falls, Canada!
