Wednesday, January 3 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! Cloudy skies through the overnight hours have kept us a bit warmer than anticipated with temperatures in the mid-to-upper-20s. The clouds will stick around through the morning hours, and then there will be gradual clearing by the afternoon. We’ll just make it to the 40 degree mark unless clouds stick around longer than anticipated, in which case highs will only be in the upper-30s. Clear skies tonight will allow temperatures to drop to around the 20 degree mark as you wake up Thursday morning. A reinforcing shot of cold air on Thursday will only allow temperatures to make it to the mid-to-upper-30s for highs, and it is looking like we’ll see one more morning in the teens for Friday.

Starting Saturday is when we’ll finally kick out the bitterly cold temperatures and start working our way back up to average, and even above average with highs around 60 by Monday. This warming trend will be out ahead of a cold front that looks to bring us some rain chances Sunday night into Monday. No thunder is expected with this system, but there will be some periods of showers, which could be moderate in nature with the frontal passage. We cool off slightly for Tuesday, but stay around average with mostly sunny skies.
