Drier & seasonal weather for the remainder of the work week
The soggy and mild conditions we had Monday gives way to a drier and cooler weather pattern starting Tuesday. Cooler, but overall seasonal weather for late January.

DRIER & COOLER TUESDAY
Compared to the unseasonably warm temperatures that we had over the weekend, Tuesday should feel a bit chilly. But, afternoon temperatures will be about where they should be this time of year in the upper 40s to near 50. A mix of clouds and sun through Tuesday Afternoon along with a bit of a breeze at 10-15mph from the west. A bit colder through Wednesday Morning as temperatures drop to between the upper 20s to lower 30s.
SEASONAL WEATHER THROUGH FRIDAY
A quiet weather pattern continues locally through the end of the work week. A sunny to partly sunny sky each day. Still a bit breezy Wednesday with some sunshine and highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Sunny to partly sunny Thursday and Friday and a little warmer each day with lower 50s Thursday Afternoon and upper 50s to even near 60 by Friday. Morning lows still chilly in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
Temperatures should remain just a little above average over the weekend. But, so will shower chances. A better coverage of showers could move in for Saturday Afternoon and continue Saturday Night. Afternoon temperatures should be in the mid/upper 50s. Showers could taper off as early as Sunday Morning, but we'll keep an eye on that timing over the next several days, hopeful that we can salvage at least one dry afternoon for the weekend. Projected rainfall amounts range from 0.40" to 0.80". Not heavy or severe, but we are behind in rainfall for the month. So, we could use the rainfall.
ARCTIC AIR RETURNS
We remain in a January Thaw pattern through the end of the month. However, there are signs that the long range weather pattern could exhibit the return of arctic air over the East and Southeast US. We'll continue to watch and see how the pattern evolves and keep you updated in the days and weeks ahead!
