Predictions of a frigid end to January has eased and while the coming week looks cold from Tuesday through Thursday, the ever-changing forecasts now predict a warming trend arriving Friday and continuing into the following week with the last day of January predicted in the 50s.
Overnight temperatures are expected to dip into single digits Tuesday and Thursday night and below freezing lows will be the norm for the remaining days of January but daytime highs will, for the most part, be in the 40s and 50s starting Friday and running until the end of the month.
Snow showers are predicted Tuesday and Thursday but no significant accumulation is expected.
So where is the often-predicted but not yet realized “first significant winter event” of the season? With at least another six-to-eight weeks of winter around us, it could still arrive but chances appear to be diminishing.
But that, like all weather outlooks, could change.
