Forecast Last Updated at Friday, January 30, 2015 at 6:34PM

Breezy, Cold Night

Wind and cold are the biggest stories through tonight. It won't be quite as breezy tonight as earlier today, but it will still add to the chill. Saturday afternoon will be milder after a cold start. Clouds increase late Saturday leading to a cloudy Sunday. Sunday is looking more rainy than snowy; however, precipitation will change to snow showers late Sunday night leading to a snow showery, blustery, and cold Monday.

Forecast Discussion

The last few weeks have been frustrating for snow lovers, watching one system after another develop off the Mid-Atlantic Coast--too far to the north and too late to produce significant snow showers. The culprit this year has been a persistent and anomalous low in the Barents-Kara Sea. It's presence has disrupted the usual flow in North America. You'd know it... a Communist Plot to rob us of snow. :-) We think that story-line will continue for a while.

Cold high pressure has only a brief hold over our weather. After a cold night tonight and a cold start Saturday, temperatures moderate somewhat in the afternoon. Clouds increase late tomorrow as well.

The trend in the last 24-36 hours has been farther north with the track of low pressure this weekend (passing to our west and north through Kentucky). While it's too early to pass judgement on this system, we nudged the forecast to more rain. However, late Sunday night, precipitation changes to snow showers as MUCH colder air rushes in behind the low. Monday looks snow showery, blustery, and sharply colder.

Again, cold high pressure has fleeting control next week. Tuesday is cold, but Wednesday and Thursday are milder. Low pressure moves out of the Gulf across Southern Georgia/South Carolina Wednesday night and Thursday. Light precipitation is possible here Wednesday, but it looks too warm for snow; thus, rain showers are in the forecast for Wednesday night. Colder air returns Thursday night.
