Quiet weather continues, mild temperatures set to move in: Lindsay Raychel’s forecast

Forecast Discussion

– Temperatures dip to the teens for one more night.
– Weather stays quiet for tomorrow but temperatures will be mild.
– Above average temperatures stay for the entire week.
– Our next storm system will bring mostly rain on Tuesday and Wednesday.
– Initial shot of freezing rain is possible on Tuesday morning, especially for areas east of I-81

Tonight:

High pressure is going to keep the weather calm for central New York. Seasonable temperatures and quiet conditions continue tonight.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day:

The upward trend in temperatures begins tomorrow. Highs tomorrow are expected to be above average and near 40 (average high is 31). 

High pressure should create some clearing skies overnight tonight and through much of the day tomorrow.

Winds will be fairly light and out of the S-SW. All in all, tomorrow should be a pleasant January day. If you have the day off, it’ll be a great day for some skiing!

Above average temperatures:

Temperatures will continue to run 10 degrees above average through the entire week. Low temperatures will flirt with the freezing mark.

Next storm system:

Our next storm system doesn’t arrive until Tuesday morning. It will track through the plains tomorrow and toward the Great Lakes by Tuesday. This system does look to bring mostly rain for Tuesday and Wednesday.

However, some of our models are suggesting that temperatures will be cold enough Tuesday morning for a brief period of freezing rain, especially for areas east of I-81  where temperatures stay colder, longer. This could make the morning commute a little slick and therefore it’s something we are keeping our eyes on.

We also have a chance for some lingering, rain/snow showers to fall at the tail end of this system, Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.

High pressure builds back in for the end of the week and the start of next weekend. This high pressure will bring dry weather and above average temperatures.
