WEATHER BLOG: Seasonable
Temps up near the normal high of 42 for Saturday.
For Saturday night, the moisture coming northeastward with the lead short wave trough will not be too great, but it will bring clouds and a bout of light precipitation with amount less than 0.10 of an inch, and maybe even less than 0.02 of an inch. It should be a light and mostly innocuous event with no accumulating snow, but we could have a little rain, snow, sleet and even freezing rain for a couple of hours that causes some slick spots for those headed out after 10 p.m. The frozen precip chances with all snow will be just to our north and west, while the farther south and east you go from the City, the more likely the light precip will be all liquid. Again, not a big event, but we do have to watch for some slippery spots north and west overnight. We don’t expect any precipitation of significance Sunday in between this first feature and the second upper level trough. It will be a mild day as well with at least a few intervals of sunshine. The second upper level trough coming eastward across the area should not have enough moisture to bring us any accumulating precip Sunday night, though there can be a couple of flurries off to the north and northwest of our viewing area.
Behind that feature, we see high pressure building in for dry weather and some sunshine Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures are apt to be down a few degrees Monday behind this upper level trough, then rebound to milder levels for January on the back side of the high Tuesday. We should remain dry and turn even milder Wednesday.
