Babies born on Thursday, February 29 will be called “leaplings” or “leapers.” This is a date that happens only once every four years to keep our time in alignment with the Earth’s rotation around the sun. This year, we expect Leap Day to be partly cloudy with a morning low of 19°F that will feel like 7°F. The afternoon high of 47°F will feel like 39°F. There is a 14% chance of rain. Plan for a shifting winds W-N-NNW 8 to 14 mph.
