Patchy drizzle, freezing drizzle & light snow will continue today with cloudy skies & temperatures steady generally in the lower 30s.  Winds will run west-southwest at 10-15 mph.

The light precipitation will last into the evening.  With falling temperatures, the some icy spots may develop. 

Gradual clearing should follow with lows 22-26 & a west wind at 8-14 mph.

Thursday looks mostly sunny with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s with west-southwest winds at 9-14 mph. 

It looks more & more like Friday system will stay completely south of our area with highs 44-47.  However, considerable high & mid cloudiness may move in from the south & southeast, diming & fading the sun.  Friday night lows will drop into the 20s as the sky clears.

The weekend looks good too!  It is 2012 style January-type weather with highs 47-54 & lows 28-32 with lots of sunshine.  Enjoy!

It will turn cloudy Sunday night with lows only 37-42 followed by widespread rain Monday & highs 49-54.

After morning rain Tuesday, temperatures should fall from 45-50 in the morning to 38-42 in the afternoon as northwest winds kick up 25-40 mph.

It is a stairstep downward into a sharply colder, snowier pattern after that.  Mid-January & onward will feature colder & colder weather with time with snow potential.  Again, we should bottom out in February.  Cold pattern will likely continue overall into March with snowfall potential.  Thinking biggest snow event of the winter will either be February or March.

European model analysis shows mid-January to mid-February snowfall all the way to southern Texas, the Gulf Coast & the Florida Panhandle with 10-15" (1-7.2" over viewing area so far this snow season) here by then.  If this model is current & the winter forecast is right on, then we should see around 21-28" of snowfall February 16-March 31 after the 10-15" in that January 15-February 15 time frame.  I forecasted 30-40" snowfall for the October-April 2018-19 snow season.
