Monday, January 14 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Monday! We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning, with skies beginning to clear in the afternoon. Another cool day is in store for us on our Monday as highs are only expected to climb into the upper-40s to around 50. Mostly clear skies overnight will allow for temperatures to drop to around 30 Tuesday morning. High pressure will begin moving in overnight, and will look to keep us dry through Wednesday.

A gradual warming trend will also ensue, with highs back to around 60 by Wednesday. A weak cold front is expected to push across the area on Thursday, and it’ll bring some scattered showers along with it. Then front will clear the area by Friday, where sunshine looks to prevail again and highs stay in the 60s. Dry conditions will not last for long as another system is set to move through the area on Saturday.

Saturday’s storm system will be stronger than Thursday’s front. Heavier rain and even a few thunderstorms will be possible on Saturday. At this time, the severe weather threat is low, but if models begin to show a slower solution over the coming days, we may be able to warm-up enough to destabilize the atmosphere for a few severe storms. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts for updates on that. After this storm system passes, the coldest air we’ve seen so far this winter is likely.
