A break in the cold is here, as the next 3 days will show. But hey, it’s still winter you know! A storm threat is showing itself next week, followed by another cold shot.
First, to end January and start February, it’ll be on the quiet but cloudy side as a front wavers around the region, dropping in as a cold front today, retreating back to the north as a warm front Saturday, then charging back through as a cold front Sunday, but not in a dramatic way because this time no Arctic air mass is set to charge in behind it.
Looking into next week, Monday looks cool and quiet, though a wave of low pressure on the recently-passed front may toss some clouds into the region but it looks like any precipitation should remain well offshore. Another storm will approach the region late Tuesday and pass through Wednesday. Very early indications are that this storm will have a track that will allow it to start as snow then change to sleet and rain in most of the region, but it should move right along and be followed by cold and dry weather Thursday.
