SATURDAY UPDATE:  Quiet Weekend – Sunday Night Rain

Today’s update is short and sweet, only because we are in a relatively quiet, benign weather pattern for the next few days.  In late January, “quiet” is a very good thing.

If you have outdoor plans, the news is good.  Unlike many weekends recently, this one will be mostly dry.  Temperatures will be very close to seasonable normals.  I don’t see anything Red Flags in the week ahead.  No big storms.  No arctic outbreaks. No severe weather.  I like being able to tell you that.

TODAY AND TONIGHT:  There will be a good bit of sunshine today.  Winds will be westerly at 5 to 10 mph.  Our high today of 56 and low tonight of 36, are both very close to the seasonal normal for this time of year.

SUNDAY NIGHT GULF DISTURBANCE:  A Low pressure Gulf storm system will brush by the state, pass south of us, Sunday night and Monday morning.  Most of Sunday will be dry.  There could be a late day shower.  The more likely risk of showers will come Sunday night, into early Monday morning.  Nothing heavy.  Nothing severe.  Monday morning will start cloudy with drizzle.  Then, look for improvement Monday afternoon.

NEXT FEW DAYS:    Following the Sunday night/Monday AM  Gulf disturbance, look for a mild start to the week.  We’ll be in the lower 60’s by Tuesday.  A mid-week disturbance will brush by the area with the risk of rain by Tuesday night into Wednesday.  The models disagree on how impactful this disturbance will be.

 

THE NEXT BIG DEAL?:  A storm system will effect the area late in the first week of February, and be followed by another big Temperature Drop.  But, that’s pretty far into the future.  For now, we’ll just keep an eye on it.

I’ll have another Blog update for you in the morning.  Have a great weekend.
