Monday Night 1/28 Forecast: Still Warmer Tuesday, Back to Winter Late Week

UPDATE 10:50 PM: After further review, I was WAY too low on my expected low temperature. I am adjusting for this — going to shoot for 50, but we’ve been steady for several hours at 54.

TONIGHT: I expect some rain showers this evening, and lows will end up around 50.

TUESDAY: Yes, the warm air will continue to move northward. We will have showers around, but it will not rain all day, and we could see some sun at some point. I am expecting a high of 64. Yes, I adjusted upward.

TUESDAY NIGHT/WEDNESDAY: Rain will dominate the forecast, and we will see a high of 60 around midday ahead of a cold front. This front will have just enough instability and wind shear that it could produce some strong winds with a line of showers and storms as it comes through during the day, and it should also send temperatures tumbling starting in the afternoon, then down to 24 by Thursday morning. A plume of moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico could result in heavy rainfall and potentially some minor flooding in spots. Any leftover rain should end as a few snow showers late Wednesday night.

THURSDAY: I expect dry and partly cloudy conditions for the day, and a high near freezing. Thursday night a quick little system will bring us a little light snow, otherwise I think lows will be in the teens.

FRIDAY: Expect dry weather again and a high into the middle 20’s. Yes, back in the freezer.

SATURDAY: A quick little system again, so a few snowflakes are back in the forecast. Look for highs around freezing, with lows near 20 both Saturday morning and night.

SUNDAY: Temperatures will be much the same as Saturday (that is, close to freezing — I’m going 33), but with partly cloudy skies.
