Tuesday 1/22 Forecast Discussion

After a chilly start this morning, we only warmed up to the low 50s this afternoon even though the sun was out in full force thanks to the cold front that came through yesterday. Tonight will be cold again with lows right around the freezing mark. A warming trend starts tomorrow, as we climb into the low 60s under mostly sunny skies. We stay in the mid 60s for Thursday and Friday afternoons, with lows only bottoming out in the mid 40s Wednesday and Thursday night. Our next shot of rain is still on track for during the day Friday into Friday evening, as a disturbance dives down from Canada through the Plains towards us. We could see anywhere from a half inch to an inch of rain with scattered showers moving over us during the day. Thankfully this storm system does not look strong, so while we may hear a few rumbles of thunder and see a few flashes of lightning, no severe weather is expected. The rain should end quickly Friday night, and we will clear out and cool down for the weekend (at least to normal levels). We will begin to warm back into the 40s for lows and 60s for highs on Monday as yet another storm system approaches us from the Northwest. Scattered showers will start to come back into the forecast for Monday, and we could see some strong storms mid-week, but it's much too early to tell exactly what to expect when, so we'll keep an eye on that. Overall, the forecast doesn't look too bad if I do say so myself!
