Tuesday, January 8 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Tuesday has been exceptionally warm as Key Field broke the record high for the date at 2pm with a temperature of 76. We will see a mild evening before clear skies, northwest winds, and drier air arriving help us drop to around 40 for Wednesday morning.

Cold air will be in place Wednesday as highs struggle towards our normal high of 56. We will see the coldest air in place Thursday and Friday as highs stay in the lower 50s with lows to and below freezing both mornings.

We will see clouds return and increase Thursday and Friday ahead of our next system. Rain will arrive on Saturday and last perhaps into Sunday morning. Models have come into better agreement on track but not on timing, so I have including leftover rain chances for Sunday in the forecast. Thunder is unlikely with this system, so no severe weather is expected, with rainfall amounts generally less than an inch area wide. Rain will taper off Sunday morning with clouds sticking around into Monday.

We will clear Monday into Tuesday with cool temperatures again in place with highs at or just below normal and lows again to and just below freezing.
