January has been memorably cold. Temperatures for the month-to-date are running around 8-degrees below normal. That reversal has begun, as above-normal temperatures will be with us into the weekend. Tonight will be below-freezing, so black ice will be us at least one more morning. With high pressure in firm command, expect generally clear weather until some more clouds return by late Sunday.
The next weather maker of note will be a cold front scheduled to pass through here Monday night. We expect some rainfall with this feature Monday afternoon and evening, although amounts are presently expected to be under an inch.
Behind the front, temperatures don’t drop a lot, as the air mass will be Pacific in nature and not Arctic. Tuesday through Thursday will be rather seasonable and dry.
