Weather Now: Mild and Dry Today, Unsettled Stretch Starts Friday

Weather Now

Good morning! We have a very nice January day ahead of us. Skies will be dry and mostly sunny, and temperatures will climb well into the 40s. Hopefully this will help ease the transition back to work and school for those that took time off after the holidays. If it’s still a tough re-entry, at least it’s already Thursday!

Clouds will begin to roll in overnight, with temperatures hovering in the upper 30s to low 40s. Most if not all of the night looks dry, but by the Friday morning commute, some light rain showers will be pushing through.

Those showers are part of a slow-moving system that will keep our weather unsettled into the weekend. Initially, the air will be quite mild, with the first round of light rain showers Friday morning, followed by a lull in the afternoon and evening.

A steadier rain is likely on Saturday, with temperatures once again in the 40s.

As our storm system slowly departs Saturday night and Sunday, the track will be key. New this morning, our computer guidance is shifting the track off-shore, which is a colder scenario for us. That could mean a change to a period of snow or a rain/snow mix on Sunday morning. Please check back for updates on this part of the forecast.

Any precipitation looks to gradually taper off through the late morning or early afternoon.
