So we end the week and start a February.I'm always glad January ends,to me its the longest month.It was certainly an up and down month,but ended almost 3 degrees above normal.Last year January was even warmer.
Also last year February was almost 6 degrees above normal,so it'll be interesting to see what happens this year.Rarely get two years in a row of such warm temps for a month,but January did it,so we'll see if February stays above normal.It will be starting off below normal the first week.Still looking at a little light snow on Sunday and Sunday night,but not a major impact.Right now at most 2-4 inches and most of that eastern and south eastern sections.
So we in that period of winter when we the coldest weather usually occurs.Instead we get 62 degrees yesterday evening and around 60 into this morning.Enjoy the warm weather this morning,temps will start to fall late morning into the afternoon after a cold front passage this morning.
Last night heavy showers moved through,and winds were gusting over 50 mph,some spots recorded gusts over 60.Some trees down and power outages around the area.Winds aren't quite as strong but still very windy with gusts 30-40 mph.Just scattered showers left.More winterlike weather into the weekend,with a chance of light snow on Sunday.
Our one day warmup is here,the day starting out in the mid-30's,but climbing,and once the warm front moves north of us later this morning,big jump in temps to the 50's and our high temps may come this evening we may even hit 60 toward midnight and early morning hours,but it also comes with high wind warnings and heavy showers,maybe even thunder this evening and overnight.Back to cold starting tomorrow afternoon.
Some freezing drizzle during the night had everything coated with a thin coat of ice this morning.Lots of spinouts on the highway this morning as people refuse to slow down and cause accidents.
A slow warmup today above freezing into the 30's,but real warm weather comes in tomorrow for a one day stay.Still no big storms in sight.
So we've reached the last week of January and eventhough we've been very cold this past week,January still remains above normal.Wednesday we could hit 60,but before we get there,a battle with cold and warm will setup over us in the northeast. Most areas will have a period of light snow starting this afternoon,and may transistion to a period of sleet and freezing rain/drizzle tonight and early tomorrow.The cold air probably won't get pushed out until tomorrow night,and a very warm day on Wednesday,then some heavy showers and maybe some thunder late in the day and then temps head down from there.
January continues to be very dry,2.5 inches below normal.
