Still plenty of sunshine, but the spring-like warmth is long gone... A cold front blew across the state last night, delivering seasonably cool air; even though this is completely normal for January, it sure feels cool after the unseasonably warm stretch we had going for much of the week. Afternoon temperatures drop back into the middle and upper 50s today and Saturday, which is exactly where we should be in late January and early February. Also, Saturday morning lows dip to near freezing by sunrise.
Clouds increase during the day Saturday in advance of a storm system. The good news is, we remain dry through afternoon and evening, then rain moves in late Saturday night/early Sunday, leading to a wet second half of the weekend. Rainfall totals will remain relatively light, generally less than 1 inch, but periods of rain along with a few rumbles of thunder will continue throughout the day Sunday.
Longer term, the pattern remains cold and unsettled next week, featuring two shots of arctic air... Winter isn't over yet, not by a long shot!
