Drying out and clearing out, but turning colder

Weather Blog

Breezy pattern as we dry out tonight, but a bit of a cold snap is on the way.

The wet pattern is coming to a close as the last of the rain exits the region for a while.  Over the past several days there has been little in the way of sunshine but all that is going to change as we head into the weekend.  Winds will be a bit aggressive moving forward tonight but should relax a bit as the night wears on under clear skies.  The biggest change I see moving into the weekend will be the cold pattern. 

As the skies clear the heat that was trapped under the clouds will radiate away quickly.  Tonight, I expect temperatures to drop into the upper 20s to low 30s most locations.  Valentine’s Day is going to be mostly sunny but on the crisp side and a bit breezy.  The sunshine will be a welcomed sight for many, but the chill of “Old Man Winter” is back.

Overnight Friday into Saturday morning looks to be one of the coldest nights of the year as we drop into the upper teens and low 20s.  We did get pretty cold in the third week of January as we dipped into the teens, and I expect this cold snap to be similar.  The good news is that we are expecting a nice warm up by Sunday.

Saturday will be sunny and dry with highs in the 40s, which will be something since we are expected to start out in the teens.  The sunshine will continue Saturday so we will once again get out vitamin D that has been hard to come by this week. 

Sunday will start a nice warm up as the mercury in the thermometer rises into the middle 50s. The warming pattern continues into the new work week with highs in the 50s again Monday and possibly reaching the 60s on Tuesday. Rain is slated to return by mid-week, but for now let’s just enjoy the sunshine and quiet pattern over the weekend.

Stay Safe.
