    Another day we can leave the gloves and hats behind, unless of course you want to build a snowman with the melting snow, or you are skiing in far northern New England where it's a little bit colder.

    For most of us though we have more sun than clouds with a high temperature 50 to 55°, cooler as we head north. Wind is from the west 10 to 15 mph.

    Clouds tend to feel the sky this evening, for another beautiful sunset, temperatures only slowly fall through the 40s and 30s, to some 20s by dawn in northern New England.

    Colder high pressure from Canada brings us sunshine for Presidents Day, high temperature mostly in 30s, to low 40s and southern and western New England. Breezy and brisk in the morning, wind from the Northwest gusting 25 to 30 mph diminishing in the afternoon. High pressure brings a cold night tomorrow night love temperature in the 20s. Sunshine early Tuesday fades behind clouds as a weakening front from the western storms approaches in the afternoon.

    That front may bring a rain or snow shower late in the day and at night Tuesday night.

    Warmer here than comes back for Wednesday with a high temperature again near 50°.

    Thursday and Friday look plenty warm, with high temperature well into the 50s, and perhaps 60s. Skies should remain fair, although a rain shower is possible here or there. And in Maine, believe it or not, it is going to snow north of Mount Katahdin Thursday afternoon.

    Friday we may end up with cooler air near the shore but overall we are still in a warm air mass with a mixture of sun clouds and highs in the 50s to low 60s.

    A more powerful front brings us periods of rain Friday night into Saturday, and also a gradual return to cooler weather. Highs should still be in the 50s in eastern New England on Saturday, cooling back to the 30s and 40s with brighter skies by Sunday.

    The early call for the beginning of March is for colder and perhaps snowier weather returning.
