Wednesday January 24 2018

After few days in the 60s, we have colder winds today that bring back the reality of late January weather. Near normal temperatures will be with us for a few days, then warm back this weekend. If you are making plans, Saturday will be the day to be outside as rain is expected Sunday.  Then we set out sights on next week as snowhounds are anxiously waiting for any hint of winter weather returning. We have that on the way.

Groundhog Day Storm?

A coastal storm expected on Groudhog Day has shown up considerably for a few days bringing a rain transitioning to snow event. While I DO NOT like to show surface maps more than 1 week away, I wanted to share this for reference before taking this a little more seriously this in a few days. This is the surface reflection of the return to the colder pattern in the Jet Stream

Temperature Outlook

The last few days in this outlook case be taken with a grain of salt. I so not trust the modeling that far out, and when it is unsure the trend display close to normal.
