Suchan Says: Unseasonably Mild Returns

After a brief shot of colder temperatures Wednesday, we’re all set for another push of unseasonably mild temperatures.  However we’re not talking about 50s or 60s with this next warm up.  Instead, a steady diet of 40s are ahead of us into the upcoming weekend.

Signs are still strong on a big plunge of arctic cold temperatures arriving next week.  Temperatures will fall below normal starting Monday and likely linger below normal for much of next week before moderating into the following weekend.


Friday will have a weak system push by with the potential to generate a few sprinkles or stray shower later in the day.  I do not expect widespread rain with this system.

Late in the weekend into early next week, flurries or a few passing snow showers will be possible as the arctic cold punches into the area.  But I still DO NOT see any big snow potential despite having quality cold air moving back in.  Here’s a look at where we stand through February 3rd on snow totals from the past couple of winters.  If it feels lack luster thus far, you’re very correct!!  There’s still time to make up some of this snow deficit and February into the first half of March can deliver big storms.
