January 19th, 2013 Forecast

Enjoy these weekend temperatures while you can.  After Sunday, the arctic flood gates open, bringing the coldest weather we have seen in over a year into our region.  The one positive is that with all of this cold air, it'll be very hard to see any precipitation, with only  minor chance of flurries on Monday.

This evening, skies will remain partly cloudy and rather cold, although not as breezy as last night.  Temperatures will range from the lower 20's to the north and west, through to the upper 20's as you head further south.  Winds will be from the southwest at 5 to 10 mph.  Saturday is looking like a gem of a day, with mostly sunny skies and moderate temperatures.  High's throughout the area will be in the upper 40's to around the 50-degree mark.  It will be slightly more windy tomorrow, with sustained winds at 5 to 15 mph from the southwest.

Sunday is also looking like a nice day, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-40's.  Then the bottom drops out.  Monday will feature sun and clouds, with more clouds towards the evening.  High only getting into the mid- to upper 30's with a chance of late day flurries.  Tuesday and Wednesday look frigidly cold, even dangerous if you don't dress properly.  Both days will only see highs in the mid-20's... Yes, I said mid-20's... under partly to mostly sunny skies and low's in the teens.  More clouds can be expected in the evening.  By Thursday, high's will be into the mid-30's with still no real big changes of precipitation around.  We're back in the 40's for Friday, under partly cloudy skies.
