Pause For Effect
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Fan of bitter cold and monster snowstorms that bury towns? Uh oh, this isn't your blog or weather pattern. Nope, the Old Man (winter) is taking a break from us for this week and even into early next week. We do get these January thaws just about every year but this one is running a bit early (typically we see a thaw form January 20th-26th where temps will run ~10 degrees above normal).
Today will be the coldest of the bunch as temps reach the mid 30s (normal for this time of year) under a mix of sun & clouds. A morning breeze may contribute to your Case of the Mondays. Clear skies tonight with overnight lows into the 20s.
Tomorrow marks the beginning of March-like temperatures will many towns easily reaching the mid 40s with mostly sunny skies. Wednesday, a cool front moves through the clouds & even a few afternoon rain showers but no arctic air. That front is not from the north pole but rather Seattle and that means temps don't take a hit late in the week. In fact, if anything, our temps hold steady & even climb a few more degrees by late week.
Is this the end of winter?!?!----Nope, not by a long shot. Bitter cold & snow will return....just not anytime soon.
