January 7th, 2012 Forecast

Mild air in place today will hold around here into tomorrow before a weak cool front nudges down from the northwest and knocks temperatures back a few degrees.  No arctic or wannabe arctic air on the horizon with this front so temperatures in the 40's will replace the 50's that we got today and will get tomorrow.  More sustained cold is about a week away, however...

Skies tonight will feature a mix of clouds and stars on a relatively mild night for early January.  Low temperatures will range from 30 in the Lehigh Valley to the mid and upper 30's in Center City and points south.   We'll warm into the 50's in many locations on Saturday with mostly sunny skies.  There will be a touch of a breeze from the west during the day that could gust to 20 mph as the cool front slips through.   Despite the front pushing through, temperatures will only drop into the mid 40's on Sunday with mostly sunny skies (just some high clouds around it seems at this point).



For now, we're keeping precipitation out of the forecast for Monday.  One of the computer models is trying to slip a southern system into the region on Monday morning with light snow here, rain at the coast.  This system is tracked on the vast majority of all computer modeling to remain far enough to our south as to not impact much of the region.   If there is a change we'll certainly update you on it over the weekend but as of now odds favor dry over not dry but it may be at a minimum a cloudier day on Monday than what we're forecasting...
