Dave’s Forecast: Chance of overnight flurries; temps around 40 Wednesday
There is a slight chance of snow flurries or a brief snow shower in some parts of the state tonight. Accumulations will be limited. The worst-case scenario is a quick sugar-coating.
WEDNESDAY: Still cloudy. There may be a few moments where the sky briefly brightens during the afternoon but plan on the skies to remain cloudy. Temperatures will be around 40 degrees, which is seasonable for the last day of January.
Clouds stick around Wednesday night but the winds begin to shift. The wind shift will bring warmer weather. Nighttime lows will be about 5 degrees warmer than average.
THURSDAY: By the afternoon, with possible hints of sun, temperatures could be 5, 10 or maybe 15 degrees warmer than normal. A weird way to start the month of February, in my opinion.
FRIDAY: Groundhog Day - early showers could have that furry forecaster NOT seeing his shadow, which means, if you believe this varmint has such powers as prognosticating the weather accurately, an early arrival to spring. I'll let you in on a secret. Feb. 2 is the mid-way point of winter. There will be six more weeks of winter regardless. Or if you aren't a fan of winter., we are now halfway through the season.
WEEKEND: Sun-filled skies. The entire weekend! The temperatures are more in line with February, but I think it's a fair trade-off for an extended sunny period, don't you? Daily highs in the low-40s. Nighttime lows are in the low 20s.
