More rain is on the way…

January 25th, 2012 at 6:42 am by under Weather

Here we go again… another soaker is shaping up for the region.  This storm is already affecting us, as we’re seeing the clouds move BACK into the picture after finally clearing out a bit overnight.  Expect another overcast afternoon, with temperatures similar to yesterday–in the mid 30s for highs.  By the late afternoon and evening, rain chances will be increasing for our southwest counties, and that will then spread northeast through the evening/overnight.

As temperatures drop this evening, there will be areas that see freezing rain.  The good news, is that we’ll be hovering RIGHT around the freezing mark, so icing is not expected to be significant.  The bad news, yes, slick spots will be possible–especially watch the bridges and overpasses.  We could see a little sleet or a few wet snowflakes mix in across the far north tonight, but no real accumulation is expected.

Warmer air at the surface and aloft will be pulled into the region as the storm gets closer on Thursday.  This will change any wintry precip to rain, and it looks like we could see some heavier pockets.  The areas that will see the most rain are south and east of town, as shown by the NAM model:

An inch or even a little more may fall in these spots, with lesser amounts as you travel northwest.  The rain will come to an end by Friday, and we’ll see dry conditions as the sun finally returns!  Temps will be knocked down a bit for the end of the week, with highs back in the upper 30s Friday afternoon.  Again, STILL above normal!!  Saturday looks pretty seasonable, but we’ll turn much colder Sunday as a front comes through.  Our high will only be near 28 degrees, with the chance of a few snow showers.

  2. Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  3. WOW just what I was looking for. Came here by searching for pdf to jpg linux

  4. I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3hours as oof late, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners andd bloggers
    made excellent content material as yyou did, the web will probably be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Heree is my web site voyance gratuite (http://www.lavoyance-gratuite.eu/)

  5. Vinyl replacement windows are also veey cost effective in that they
    form a very gookd barrier between the outgside atmosphere
    and the inside one making your need for air conditioning
    much less. Many companies offer services for anything to do with residences, from thhe
    porch, to tthe deck area, to the bathroom, to the windows.

    Vinyl art themes can be anything creative unddr the sun, and there are special designers available to maje it the
    best.
