Yesterday was pretty nice out. I was working on my shed for a bit around midday, and I was pretty comfortable with only a layered long-sleeve shirt. High temps made it into the 50s. Today we will have some more nice weather. There were a few clouds around this morning, but we’ll be partly sunny and mild for most of the day. High temps will be in the upper 50s with a few 60s inland/south.
There was a weak area of low pressure just to our southeast early this morning. It brought a few sprinkles and light showers before dawn. Now that has moved well out to sea. High pressure is edging in from the west.
We’ll have fair skies for most of the day. It will be another nice afternoon. The mild/dry air should allow for some nice drying of the ground. We’ll be dry and warm tomorrow during the day. High pressure will be overhead. High temps will rise to the upper 50s to low 60s. There will be some showers to our west, but they probably won’t arrive here until the evening. At least in the metro.
A line of showers will move in with the cold front late Friday evening. Then it will move out early Saturday morning. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds Saturday. It will be cooler with high temps near 50 degrees. A strong upper level low will roll overhead Saturday evening. It’s possible that we’ll have a few sprinkles or flurries at that time. Then we’ll be cool and dry on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s. Then we’ll be mostly cloudy on Monday (M.L.K Day). There may be some isolated showers with highs near 50.
Many folks are talking about a recent disruption of the Polar Vortex.
