Wednesday, January 29 Forecast Discussion

Snow and ice has had little chance to melt efficiently through the day today thanks to limited sunshine. The high cloud cover has limited our highs as well, keeping all of us still below freezing even this afternoon. Clouds will exit overnight finally as an upper level low departs, and that will allow for temperatures to drop off towards the coldest we have been so far this year. Some locations could see single digit readings by tomorrow morning.

With sunshine tomorrow and a warming southeast wind, we will finally all crack freezing and head into the 40s. The warmer air should allow all of our snow and ice to melt, but some of it will refreeze for Friday morning thanks to lows below freezing for one more night. Highs into the weekend will go to the 50s for Friday, and then 60s for Saturday and Sunday.

Starting Saturday as more moisture arrives, we could see some isolated to scattered showers develop. The best chance for seeing rain will be Sunday and Tuesday as two cold fronts pass. Right now, Tuesday's cold front looks a little stronger, so we will keep an eye on it as we get closer for the possibility of some thunderstorms.

Behind our front on Tuesday, after seeing highs reach 70, another cold shot looks to arrive. At this moment, it does not look as strong as some of the more powerful cold blasts, but highs could be knocked down a good 20 degrees between Tuesday and Wednesday.
