Forecast Discussion
Overview: The rest of this week looks cold, but dry. The next potential winter storm is from Sunday night into Monday.

Details: (Posted at 8 PM on Tuesday 1/27) The rest of this week and the first half of the weekend will be on the cold side (highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s), but mainly dry. Look for abundant sunshine most days, except on Thursday when there is a slight chance of a rain shower as a reinforcing shot of cold air pushes through the area.

The forecast from Sunday into Monday continues to look intriguing, but uncertain. At this point, it seems most likely that we will see rain on Sunday, changing to snow Sunday night before ending Monday morning. However, I am still unwilling to get any more specific than that, especially with how poor the computer model forecasts have been lately. This could be a decent winter storm--or it could be mainly a rain event, ending as a little bit of snow. At this point, either outcome (or anything in between) is within the realm of possibility. Hopefully the picture will become clearer over the next couple of days.

Looking into the first part of February, I think temperatures will continue to be a little below normal, and while the potential for a winter storm certainly exists, there aren't any overwhelming signs of one at the present time.
