Wet Pattern Continues – Arctic Air Lurking

Even winter goes on vacation and we have been the beneficiaries of that for the bulk of the month of January. So far this month we are running about 4.5 degrees above normal in the temperature department. Like all good things that will come to an end, but first we’ll have to get through some pretty wet days.

All of that moisture and then some currently bringing heavy rain and severe storms to the Deep South is heading this way. The severe threat WILL be limited to our south, but that moisture has its sights set on our area.

Three separate waves of rain will parade through the area starting later tonight (Saturday) and continue through Monday evening. A general 1-3″ of rain will be possible on top of what came Friday morning. The first push moves in Saturday night.

Other than a few stray showers Sunday afternoon the first part of Sunday looks dry. The second part is a different story.

The last and potentially heaviest wave of rain arrives overnight Sunday and Monday morning.

Sunshine returns Tuesday as we keep things above normal through Thursday.

WHERE’S WINTER?

I’m glad you asked…and you can be glad it’s not here. While we have been mild in January, the Arctic air has been hiding way up north in Canada and Alaska. These were the temperatures Saturday morning. The temperatures…not the wind chill!

OUCH!!! That air has been charging as we have been wearing shorts at times over the last week or so. There are indications as we close out January and head into February that we will “pay” a price so to speak for being so comfortable in what is climatologically speaking the coldest time of the year. Stay tuned…
