7 Day Forecast

SkyWarn 13 Forecast

January 27, 2015 Updated: 12:40 PM

We had originally planned for sunshine today, but that is looking unlikely at this point. We could see some breaks in the clouds and peeks of sun, but a mostly sunny sky is out of the question at this point. High pressure will be in control of the weather, but those stubborn clouds just don't want to break up. Bummer, right? Well, it could be worse...we could be measuring feet of snow and have to contend with almost 80 mph winds like the east coast!

Overall, our weather pattern will remain quiet for the next two days. We'll see highs reach toward freezing this afternoon with even milder air ahead tomorrow. Highs should top out in the mid and upper 30s with a mix of clouds and some sun. Winds remain light from the south/southeast. The next change in the pattern arrives Wednesday night but will be a quick mover with most of the storm gone by early Thursday morning. This next system looks to bring a wintry mix of sleet, snow and maybe some freezing rain which could make for a very messy commute. We'll be ahead of it to keep you prepared. Snowfall does not look to be significant, but given the timing, it may still cause some headaches and slow downs for drivers.

High pressure should be back in control of the weather later Thursday drying us out and bringing some sunshine to end the work week. But, it will also help some colder air move into the area. The last two weeks have really been mild for January. This is typically the time when we see the coldest temps of the entire year! Instead, we've been running at least 10° sometimes almost 25° above average (especially for our lows). Well, it looks like we'll be making up for the warm stretch with some very cold air settling in to start February. Friday's high will be typical for late January in the low 20s with even colder air moving in this weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday will see highs in the teens with lows in the single digits (which is normal for this time in winter!)

We'll also be watching a potential snow maker for Saturday. Forecast models still very uncertain as to what exactly will happen, not very useful for us, so for now, plan to see some additional flakes flying this weekend and we will update you as the models come into more agreement and the picture looks clearer. One thing does look certain...highs early next week may stay in the single digits. Brrr!

Enjoy the highs in the 30s while we have them!
