Thursday, January 10 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Thursday! Many of us have dropped to the freezing mark and also slightly below it for the first time in a long time; in fact, this is the first time this year! We’ll see plenty of sunshine today though highs are only expected to climb into the low-50s. It’ll be another cold evening tonight, with temperatures bottoming out below freezing once again.

Clouds will start to build in by Friday out ahead of the next storm system to impact our area. That system will bring rain throughout the day Saturday as highs climb back to average. We’ll likely see about a half an inch of rain across the area; however, one or two spots may receive higher amounts. These higher amounts are highly unlikely to be over an inch. In sum, there is no flash flooding concern with this system.

We dry out by Sunday, though a lingering shower may still be around prior to sunrise. Colder air follows this system and we’ll expect to see lows dropping to around the freezing mark by Monday. Speaking of Monday, that will be the coldest day of the next seven as highs are only expected to climb into the upper-40s. We start a warming trend from there with highs in the mid-50s by Tuesday and the upper-50s by Wednesday, all under sunny skies.
