We will finish out the work week in fantastic fashion with lots of sun and highs from the upper 50s to lower 60s.
The first in a parade of system to impact the region over the next couple of weeks is still on schedule for this weekend. I think we will squeeze in the daylight hours tomorrow dry before a soaking rain arrives tomorrow night into Sunday morning. Then look for some showers at times Sunday as the upper level energy ripples overhead.
Total rain amounts will likely be in the 1-2" category, so a nice soaking appears on the way.
Monday and Tuesday still look dry next week, but another system will roll our way and bring some rain chances by the end of the work week. The GFS has at times indicated some wintry potential with that system, but I have a feeling it is a little too far south with the features over the eastern US, and I am leaning toward an all-liquid scenario at the moment.
Very cold air will build back into Canada as the month unfolds, and I still expect we will see that plunge back into the eastern US by the end of the month or early February.
Enjoy your weekend!
