A rainy day for New Years Day, but we need the rain after a dry month of Dec (with only 1.3" at my house, and half of that came in the last 5 days of Dec.).
The change begins tomorrow. This is why I changed the picture. Winter is returning or beginning depending on your perspective. Temperatures will fall from the 50s to the 20 by Monday morning. Cold and mostly cloudy early for Sunday as a storm system moves NE but stays just far enough SE of our area to prevent us from having some snow (nice snowstorm for areas in northern VA, central MD, DE, and southern NJ). Clouds will decrease Monday afternoon.
Quiet weather dominates into Wed, when a storm well north of us will give us the chance for a snow/rain shower but more importantly reinforce the cold air for the arrival of a more important system for Thu night and Fri. This storm could be our first snowstorm of the winter season. Details are far from known right now, but the set up is looking good for a possible plowable snowfall.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Winds increase. Warm early then cooling off. 55.
Monday: Mostly cloudy then clearing. Cold. 28.
Tuesday: Sunny. 32.
Wednesday: Partly sunny. Chance for rain/snow shower. 38.
Thursday: Partly sunny then increasing clouds. Chance snow/rain overnight. 35.
Friday: Cloudy. Chance snow/rain. 32.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. 28.
