Tuesday Morning 1/29 Forecast: Watching Severe Potential

TODAY: The warm air will continue to move northward today. I do now think we could see a brief period of partial clearing later today, but it’ll be short-lived as high clouds blow in from the southwest. I am expecting a high of 67. Yes, I adjusted upward.

TONIGHT/WEDNESDAY: Lows tonight do not fall far — I am going to keep us in the lower 60’s tonight and for the first part of tomorrow. Rain will dominate the forecast as a very strong cold front moves in. 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 tonight and tomorrow morning, and it should also send temperatures tumbling starting in the afternoon, then down to 24 by Thursday morning. Given the strong wind shear, a tornado CANNOT be ruled out either, but might be limited to a spin-up or two. The Storm Prediction Center has a SLIGHT RISK out west of Cincinnati. A plume of moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico could also 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 could still bring us a little light snow, otherwise I think lows will be in the teens Thursday night.

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.
