Daily Weather Briefing for Wednesday, February 12, 2020





Outlook

A nearly stationary front over our area will move north as a warm front through tonight as another low-pressure system and attendant cold front approach from the west. This cold front, and the associated moisture, will cross the region late Wednesday night through Thursday. Cool and dry high pressure settles into our region Friday through Saturday. Yet another low-pressure system and cold front will approach from the west late in the weekend.
