Weekly Outlook: January 11-17, 2021

Another fairly quiet week is coming up across the region, but don’t expect the dry spell to last too much longer.

We start the week on a chilly note with high pressure sliding offshore. A weak disturbance will spread some clouds in, but little precipitation will accompany it. The middle of the week will feature high pressure at the surface, but with some additional upper-level disturbances swinging through, we’ll have periods of clouds at times, but little to no precipitation, and temperatures that are near to above normal for the middle of January.

By Friday, we’ll start to see some changes as a fairly strong low pressure system moves into the Great Lakes. That will keep us on the mild side of it, with some rain possible during Friday and Saturday before a cold front finally pushes through. It won’t be raining the entire time, but it does appear as though our extended stretch of dry weather will finally end. How much rain we’ll get is still up for debate, as the models aren’t all on the same page at the moment. Cooler air settles in behind that front on Sunday.

Some models bring a decent amount of rain in for Friday and Saturday, some have very little. We’ll see which way they trend over the next few days. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
