Clearing Skies Later Today 1-15-12

After a soggy, gray start to the week we’ll see conditions improve by the afternoon.  A cold front moved through the region this morning and is progressing quickly to the east.  The heaviest precip is over but a scattered shower or two is still possible this morning.  Cloud cover will thin out this afternoon and we should see some sunshine as well.  Winds will continue to be gusty though and temperatures will remain on the cool side.  Tonight is expected to be chilly but frost and/or a freeze isn’t expected.

A ridge of high pressure will dominate the eastern portion of the country on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Tomorrow will see some very nice weather as an abundance of sunshine will make you forget the dreary conditions of this morning.  However, it will be breezy (especially at higher elevations) and high temps will struggle to reach 60 degrees.

Wednesday looks to be the nicest day of the week.  Temperatures moderate several degrees over Tuesday and sunshine continues.

Cloud cover and winds increase early Thursday ahead of our next cold front.  There is model discrepancy right now with the timing of the frontal passage.  Showers could last into Friday if it takes longer to pass through.  We’ll have to keep an eye on this.  Regardless, a closed low to our north will keep cloud cover in play through Saturday.
