Increasing Clouds Tonight, Warmer and Windy Tomorrow

January 25th, 2012 at 5:55 pm by under Weather

Temperatures should stay warmer tonight as the clouds are quickly rolling in this evening. We will see many more clouds tomorrow as a new storm system bring in that extra moisture. There is a slight chance for a stray shower tomorrow in the morning, but I wouldn’t put too much stock into it.

The noticeable change will be the temperatures! A warm front will blast in a push of temperatures back in the 60s tomorrow with a strong south wind at 10-15mph. Its only going to last one day, because as a cold front begins to move in from the west on Friday it will quickly rotate our winds to be from the Northwest and temps going back down to the 40s.

Besides the colder air coning in our Future Trak model is also picking up on some rainfall, possible close to 1/2 inch, on Friday. I would plan on seeing showers in the morning on Friday. This weekend looks dry and sunny with highs in the 50s.

    Hi Jeremy. Do you think Northeastern North Carlina and Virginia, (your viewing area) will get any snow this(feels like it’s spring) Winter? I sure hope we do!

      At the rate we’re going we are not likely to get snow. We still have Feburary, so there is a chance. But the time-window is quickly shrinking.

    Jeremy how about we just wish to the snow gods and bring us a snow storm in march like the one that hit this area back in 1993. Just kidding but that would be a sight. So thanks for the update though. The models are just not favoring snow for us. I don’t understand why they keep getting the future pattern wrong. Do you? I mean for the past what 2 months they were predicting a change in the pattern due to PV’s moving and the NAO and AO turning negative but that never came about. What are your thoughts?

      The models are probably off because as they get further out they like to add climatology to the mix. Unfortunately the weather has been very un-Winter like. So that could be one big part of it. Otherwise, I’d have to see if there have been any recent updates to the physics package that may have changed the models. NCEP does that from time-to-time, but I haven’t kept up with it lately.
