After enduring a brutal chill Tuesday into Wednesday the moderation continues today, as highs get well up into the 30s to near 40 with a southerly breeze and mainly dry conditions this afternoon after the coating to an inch or two of snow late last night & this morning region wide.
The January Thaw will kick into full gear late tonight and Saturday when temperatures climb into the upper 40s to low 50 by daybreak Saturday behind a warm front due to move through tonight! Winds will crank up from the south pushing the mercury well above average with some rain & significant snow melt, which may cause some minor flooding in spots, mainly due to ice jams. A cold front will blow through late Saturday & winds will really blow and cool to more seasonable levels later Saturday night into Sunday, but remain above average with highs around 40 to end the weekend. There could also be a couple of passing rain &/or snow showers around to end the weekend.
Early next week will feature a brief warm up again, before we turn colder & more wintry for the middle & possibly end of next week. Stay tuned & have a great Friday & weekend bloggers!!
