We had a little more damp weather overnight and a touch of drizzle can still be found this morning. Over the next 24 hours, the radar can be a bit “deceiving” as it will look quiet even though drizzle could be falling out of a low deck of clouds. Notice this morning: no green on the radar but observations of drizzle are common (green boxes):
Temperatures are in the upper 30s and they will stay there all day. A real “flat line” temperature trace today.
Although not much drizzle will fall this afternoon, the data suggests that light rain/drizzle will probably return this evening. Notice the fairly deep layer of saturated air in the low levels of the atmosphere:
Might have to watch for patchy fog tonight as well.
Thursday will be a nicer day….after a cloudy start we expect some midday and afternoon sunshine with highs in the upper 40s.
A period of rain is likely on Friday but it will still be quite mild.
Near-record warmth is on the way for Saturday. The record high of 59 may be broken. We look to stay dry as well! Enjoy!
On Sunday, that old boundary will come back north and this will lead to a good chance for afternoon and nighttime showers.
The pattern will certainly shift toward more “average” mid-winter weather toward the end of next week and the end of the month. Does not look super cold but just back to what you expect at this time of the year.
In case you missed this yesterday….winters are not getting “less snowy”, in fact just the opposite! This surprises many people who think the winters of the 70s and 80s were much snowier.
