Wednesday Afternoon January 17th – Our Chance to Really Melt the Snow is Coming

Good Wednesday afternoon, everyone. It was another cold start this morning with lows around -4°, but we have started the warming trend today. Granted, we had temperatures climb into the lower to middle 20s. Still, that’s better than being stuck below 10° yesterday! We’ll stay cold tonight, but we’ll also stay quiet as well with nothing popping up on the radar below…

While we do stay cold tonight, it won’t be as cold as it has been for the last few nights. While a few outlying areas could drop back into the upper single digits, most spots will drop into the lower to middle teens by Thursday morning. The afternoon looks better with temperatures pushing into the upper 30s to about 40°…

While we did have the sunshine today help melt a little of the snow, temperatures back above freezing Thursday will really get the process going. We’re still set to go even warmer by the time the weekend gets going. Highs still look to climb into the 50s for Friday thanks to the south wind still helping the warmer air return. If any snow is still around (for some reason) after Friday afternoon, it should definitely be gone with highs pushing into the 50s and 60s…

By Sunday, though, we’ll have our next system ready to work in…

With this system, we may have enough warmth and some instability to get some t-storms for Sunday afternoon. If not, we’re looking at widespread rain chances for your Sunday…

Depending on how fast temperatures drop Sunday night and going into Monday morning, we could see the last of the moisture result in a little snow. With those chances looking pretty slim for now, we’ll keep this system pretty much as rain. Behind the system, we will cool down again. It won’t be quite the cold blast like we had this week, but we’ll have highs back near normal in the middle 40s going into early next week…

Have a good night and a great Thursday!
