January 26, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out cool today, as a cold front that brought the storms lastnight has moved well south of our area. The pattern will continue to support cool days and chilly nights through atleast Monday before more changes occur.
Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight, with a light west to northwest breeze. If the wind can go calm, frost will develop. With a wind all night, frost would be more patchy or unlikely. The upper air trough will remain in firm control of our local weather, bringing a mostly sunny sky and chilly temperatures. Highs will top out in the lower 50s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with lows at or just below freezing. As an upper air disturbance digs around the base of the trough, expect a mostly cloudy sky on Sunday, but there isn’t enough surface or lower atmospheric moisture to bring any rain on Sunday.
The trough will begin its northeastward retreat on Monday and Tuesday. Highs will remain in the lower 50s on Monday, but low 60s are likely on Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows will modify into the 40s at night by mid week.
