I hope to be able to get a post (soon) on the interesting things happening around India, Australia to New Zealand & beyond & how it is impacting weather here.  I will also dig into what is going on in the Northern Hemisphere.

For the time being, let's dig into the new data that is arriving.

We have nice clearing holes in the low overcast over the area before clouds return.

Temperatures should range from 27-32 for lows tonight (then rises to 31-34) as a weak system from the west approaches.

This looks to bring a few isolated freezing rain/rain showers late tonight-early tomorrow (25%).  Some patchy fog is possible.

Some clearing will ensue with southwest winds 10-25 mph.

I did knock the high temperature back from 47-53 to 43-50.

After 27-31 tomorrow night with a clearing sky, we should cloud over & rise to 31-34 with some scattered freezing rain/rain showers Wednesday morning.  A few spotty showers will follow with mostly cloudy to cloudy skies.

After a high of 50, we should drop late in the day with southwest winds increasintg & then shifting to the west.

They may gust +35 mph in some areas Wednesday evening-night as temperatures plunge to 17-23.

With cold in place, system out of the Plains arrives Friday afternoon.

It appears that it may begin as snow, then change to sleet & freezing rain then rain with time.

Change-over to rain should occur Friday overnight.

Rain will taper Saturday with falling temperatures & a howling northwest wind gusting potentially 40-50 mph.  However, southeast to south & southwest winds may even gust to 30 mph with the frozen precipitation & rain.

Some snow & ice accumulation is possible before it changes to rain.  Duration of the frozen precipitation of any type & accumulation amounts are still a bit unclear.

Colder & snowier pattern is ahead late January & into February.
