The last morning of January started off much like the first morning of January…COLD!
Abundant sunshine and southwesterly winds will start to warm us up today, but we’ll still only climb to the mid to upper 40s this afternoon:
The wind will remain strong enough tonight to mix around the atmosphere and keep temperatures from falling too far — we’ll end up in the low to mid 30s by early Thursday morning:
A more substantial warmup kicks in Thursday, with highs reaching the upper 50s:
It will be breezy throughout the day, with southwesterly winds gusting over 20 mph.
Our next chance of rain heads in Thursday night. It won’t last long, scooting off the Coastal Plain early Friday morning:
Like yesterday, we’ll see cool and breezy conditions (but lots of sun!) once the showers move out.
The chilly weather will stick around into the weekend, with temperatures only climbing to the low 40s on Saturday after another very cold morning:
Right now, it looks like temperatures will warm up enough on Sunday to keep our shower chance as a rain chance…even better, the latest forecast data is trending slightly warmer next week. We’ll see if that trend continues!
