MILDER AIR MOVES IN JUST IN TIME FOR THE WEEKEND… THE ARCTIC AIR MASS RELEASES ITS GRIP ON THE UNITED STATES

As if right on cue, mild air is moving in which will make for a beautiful weekend for early February. Temperatures should peak out around 60 degrees on Saturday and on Sunday, it might be a bit warmer. However, a cold front will be slipping through on Sunday which will bring us back to near normal onĀ  Monday. Believe me, 60 degrees will feel quite nice after a week of bone chilling temperatures. Forecasters say that the flow will be zonal next week meaning that upper level winds will be blowing predominantly from west to east. This prevents arctic air from infiltrating into our region for the most part. It can also prevent Gulf moisture from coming northward. The pattern will most likely change later in the week. Speaking of moisture. We are starting the year quite dry as we are close to three inches below normal.
