Wednesday, January 9 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! After temperatures exceeded my expectations yesterday, a different air mass is now in place and it is a much cooler one. High pressure will be the dominant weather system over the next few days as we look to stay mostly sunny with temperatures at-or-below-average. We’ll see mid-50s for highs today, and low-50s for highs on both Thursday and Friday. Morning lows look to be at or below freezing for both Thursday and Friday.

A storm system will bring some rainfall to our area beginning Friday night and lasting through the day on Saturday. Though rain could get locally heavy at times, we’ll see less than an inch of rain area-wide before all said and done. In other words, there will be no flash flooding concerns with this system. There are some models are hinting at showers continuing through Sunday morning; however, I am not convinced enough yet that this will be the case and thus I have decided to keep rain chances off the board for Sunday. I did however take away rain chances for Friday during the daytime hours.

Colder air will follow this system by Sunday and Monday as highs struggle to even reach the 50s, especially on Monday which is expected to be the coldest day of the next seven. We do look to dry out though and stay that way through at least Tuesday. Abundant sunshine for Tuesday should allow highs to warm into the low-to-mid-50s.
