Warming Trend Continues, Rain by SaturdayJanuary 8th, 2014 at 4:24 pm by Ken Brewer under Weather
Are you ready for the 40s???
THIS EVENING: There will be pockets of flurries, and maybe a few snow showers mainly in northern parts of our area, but no additional accumulation is expected. Temps should stay in the 20s, so chemicals placed on the roadways should continue to work on the ice, but still watch for slick spots.
OVERNIGHT: We will keep the chance of scattered flurries and a few snow showers in the forecast overnight. Temps won’t drop much, and only drop into the mid to upper teens.
THURSDAY: An upper-level disturbance will swing through the region and give us some scattered snow showers. Any accumulation should be 1″ or less. Some melting of the snow may begin, as milder air will push temps into the mid 30s.
8-DAY FORECAST: Temps will climb into the 40s Friday and for the weekend. That is the good news. The bad news is that rain will arrive Saturday, and that, combined with melting snow could cause at least some minor flooding in the areas with the heavy snowfall. Stay with Forecast 8 as we will keep track of that potential over the next several days.
