High and dry… and warmingNovember 28th, 2012 at 8:17 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
High pressure over the region brought us a nice quiet and cold morning today. Temperatures dropped into the lower and mid 20s across the Valley, and again we had to deal with some light fog and a heavier frost. But this same high will bring really nice weather our way over the next few days!
This afternoon will still be chilly–but we’ll be warmer than yesterday. Yesterday we only hit 36 for a high, and today we should make it into the lower 40s. The warming trend will continue as the high shifts off to our east for Thursday:
Here’s how temperatures will play out during the second half of the week:
Chances for rain/snow also remain low. We could see a few spotty showers (especially in the northern counties) on Friday as the warmer air moves in. But a better chance for precip holds off until Sunday, as a weak front moves through. Earlier in the week, models were forecasting nice coverage with this event, but they’ve sort of backed off on that–it does not look like a wash-out. A more impressive front is currently pegged to arrive on Tuesday. We may get a blast of colder air behind this one… we’ll keep an eye on the latest trends!
