It is cold. It will stay cold. It is January so what else can we expect?
After yesterdays fog and chilly weather (until front passed and temps spiked like I thought it would, except it was a lot later than I thought. Saw a reading of 47 at 9:30 pm yesterday. Warmest temp of the day with no fog and windy conditions.) it will be nice to see the sunshine today.
Here is the forecast for this week:
High: Low: Weather Details
Monday: 30 15 Partly sunny, very windy. Cold. Temps slowly falling. Clouds increase with snow arriving towards sunrise.
Tuesday 25 13 Cloudy with snow in morning until early afternoon. 2-3” of snow. Some clearing late. Very cold.
Wednesday 19 5 Sun and clouds. Breezy. Very cold. Temps falling late after possible snow shower/squall with passage of arctic boundary.
Thursday 14 10 Sun and clouds. Breezy. Very cold.
Friday 25 15 Some light snow. 1” with up to 2” locally. Somewhat milder.
Saturday 20 8 Sun and clouds. Breezy. Cold.
Sunday 27 15 Sun and clouds. Breezy. Still cold.
1. Very cold week ahead. Definitely feeling like mid-winter.
2. Snow for first half of Tue will be light and fluffy. It will accumulate immediately due to cold ground. 2-3” is most likely. Am concerned models are dampening weak system too fast due to mountains to our west and jumping system off shore. Think it will hold together better. Areas to our south could get a 4” surprise!
3. Bitter cold air for mid-week. With the passage of a strong arctic boundary Wed there could be a strong line of snow showers/squalls that could drop a quick 1” of snow mid-afternoon.
4. There is a chance for going below zero Wed-night/Thu morning, if winds die down enough. Thu highs will struggle to make the mid-teens.
5. Strengthening system coming down from Canada on Fri will reinforce the cold for the weekend, bringing some snow showers/squalls with it.
6. Cold dry weekend.
