Spring-like Temperatures in the Southeast This Week

As we enter February, a cold and snowy pattern is still nowhere to be found. In fact, more days than not this week will be dry with abundant sunshine. Hey that’s not a bad treat if you don’t like cold and snow, and you can have it right here in the Carolinas without having to venture down to Florida.

We are heading for what could be a third straight above-average February in a row as far a temperatures. Temperatures could reach near 70 degrees F at any given day this week, especially with the sun shining bright.

Below is the GFS temperature anomalies for Monday evening. It will feel like spring in February.

The NAM model shows highs in the upper 60s, but again, this may be underdone especially with a strong sun overhead. In eastern NC and SC, highs will have no problem reaching the 70 degree mark and even above. This is especially true for the NC and SC beaches from Wilmington to Charleston and down to Hilton Head Island.

What does warm temperatures and winter usually mean? Severe storms. And we could see a line of severe storms move across the Southeast this week, perhaps Wednesday night. Watch for this in a separate post, and thanks for reading!
