January 28th, 2012 Forecast

In the wake of today's brief and fleeting warm up in some places, a cool front will bring about a bit of a reality check.  Temperatures will not drop much in the wake of the front but instead of talking about 60's we'll be talking low 50's in many locations tomorrow.

Winds will be an issue through most of the evening hours, gusting to 30 mph this evening before slackening off later on.  Temperatures will drop down to around the freezing mark in the city by morning, with upper 20's and low 30's common throughout the rest of the region later tonight.   Skies will feature a mix of clouds and stars later on.

Saturday's sky will feature more sunshine in the morning, some increase in clouds during the afternoon as a weak front moves in from the west.  A few showers are possible after sunset on Saturday evening but they should be minor in coverage across the region.  Highs should end up being in the 49-53 range across the region, with low 50's in the city.

The weak front will serve to knock temperatures back a few degrees on Sunday, with another minor front crossing the region Sunday night with another shot of rain or snow showers in the region.  Monday will be the "coolest" day of the upcoming stretch before we moderate back into the 50's...perhaps as soon as Tuesday.
