Thursday, January 30 Forecast Discussion

Temperatures broke freezing earlier this morning and by early this afternoon most of us are already into the low 40s. Mid 40s will be the highs today, but we still have one more cold night on tap. Temperatures tonight will bottom out in the low 20s, which means that there will be some patchy areas of ice, especially in locations which have been shaded for most of the day.

We will climb back to normal tomorrow and also see clouds begin to return ahead of what will become a very busy stretch weather wise.

Saturday will see highs return to the 60s and also our first shot at seeing rain showers as warm air lifting northward from the Gulf could mean a few isolated showers. The better chance will be on Sunday as cold front number one approaches the area and gives us some rain showers.

Monday will be mostly dry with a shower or two still possible. Late Tuesday into Wednesday will see cold front number two arrive. This one looks to be a little more potent. We could see a thunderstorm or two develop with the front, but we are too far out to nail down specifics at this point. Temperatures will climb to about 70 on Tuesday.

Behind front number two, much cooler air arrives as highs return back to the 50s and lows will drop back towards freezing for the latter portion of next week.
