Monday (1/16) Morning Weather Briefing

GOOD MORNING!

It’s MLK day and many have the day off. What kind of day will it be? Well, “ok” I guess. Fairly cloudy but not that cold by this afternoon as temperatures rise into the mid/upper 30s. The weather map shows a warm front heading our way:

Note the icy mess continuing in parts of the middle of the country. That warm front will lift into the Valley late today and there will be some rain showers around by dinnertime. 18 hour simulated radar:

Rain is most likely from mid-evening through the overnight hours. As many head back to work and school Tuesday morning, I expect rain to dampen most areas.

While the steadiest rain will occur in the morning, some drizzle/spotty showers can linger in the afternoon.

Most short-range modeling gives us around 0.50″-0.60″ of rain through Tuesday.

The NWS forecast is in agreement:

Despite the rain,  Tuesday will be quite balmy with highs at least 20 degrees above average.

I would not be surprised if a shower or two lingered into Wednesday but overall the day looks “less wet”.

JANUARY THAW

Temperatures won’t even come close to average through the next week. This is the coldest time of the year climtalogicaly speaking (average high: 32) so this is quite a treat. Temperatures during the upcoming weekend are likely to reach the 50s again and it looks largely dry, especially on Saturday.

Note the cool down toward the end of the month. There are strong signals that the final handful of days of January will bring a return to more typical mid-winter weather. The cold will overtake much of the lower 48:

I think February will be colder and stormier.
