Good morning bloggers,
Another cold shot of air will be arriving later today, and then we can focus on a potential weekend storm system, and as you can see below, we are once again behind on precipitation to begin the year:
An Arctic high pressure area is moving south from Canada today. Here is the surface forecast valid at noon today:
The latest data continues to trend towards a storm that will produce some rain Saturday night and Sunday. How much is still a big question. And, the freezing line will be lifting north through the viewing area. What may begin as freezing rain would quickly change to a cold rain with temperatures rising above freezing. We will have to monitor that freezing line closely. It is still three days away, so we have a lot of time for this to look a bit different.
The above map is from yesterday’s GFS model. Let’s see what it looks like today and we will go over the details on 41 Action News. Have a great day.
