After several weeks of colder weather, a stretch of milder weather is in our future. The next couple of days will see moderating temperatures before the real January thaw sets in this weekend.
Today will see decreasing clouds and even some sunshine by the afternoon. Temperatures look to be slightly above average for this time of year but it will still be cool out there. Snowmaking at the ski areas tonight looks to be possible as lows will dip into the upper 20’s.
Tomorrow will see sunshine and warmer temperatures. It will be a spring-like day on the slopes with highs in the 40’s and bluebird skies. Continued mild conditions continue Wednesday but cloud cover will be increased.
Thursday sees thick cloud cover as a warm front associated with a low pressure system approaches from the south. Showers are expected Thursday night as the front passes through the region. Showers continue and cloud cover remains on Friday as the cold front on the backside of the low pressure system pushes through from the west.
Moist, southerly wind flow this weekend will create very mild conditions and keep a chance of rain in the forecast. High temperatures look to be 15-20 degrees above normal.
Our next frontal system moves through Sunday night and looks to bring more precip along with it.
