1/12 – Rob’s “Midday News” Weekend Forecast
After a good bit of cloud coverage earlier this morning…skies have begun to clear.
The big story for us will be the cold air that is going to push into the area today and last for the next few days. Temperatures today should slowly fall through the day. We will struggle to get much above the mid to lower 40s. Tonight`s lows will dip into the 20s across the north and south of the lake we expect temperatures in the lower 30s. For this reason a FREEZE WARNING has been issued for all areas tonight. This will be the first night of several nights where we will need some sort of cold headline. I expect HARD FREEZE WARNING Saturday night, with slightly warmer temps on Monday
Going into next week still expect a fairly cold regime to be in place. We do catch a small warm-up on Monday but that will be short lived as a reinforcing cold front is expected to move through the region on Tuesday. Right now, guidance does show some light precipitation with that front. At the end of next week the surface high slips to the east, which would allow gulf flow to return with warmer temperatures and moisture.
