Weekly Outlook: January 31 – February 6, 2022

After a snowy weekend, quiet weather will settle in for a few days.

The week starts off on a rather chilly note with high pressure in control, but as it slides off to the east, temperatures will moderate for the next few days. By Wednesday, many locations could top 40 degrees. This will help to melt some of the mounds of snow across the region, but remember, with temperatures dropping below freezing at night, anything that melts will ice back up.

The next storm system approaches on Thursday, and it looks a bit complicated. A cold front will bring colder air back into the region and a wave of low pressure will ride along it, possibly passing south of the region. With warmer air in place to start, we will likely see precipitation start as rain, but a change to sleet and/or freezing rain is possible, especially across the interior during Thursday night and Friday. We could see a change to snow before everything winds down Friday afternoon. We’ll obviously have a better handle on this storm later this week. High pressure then builds in for the weekend with cold and dry conditions.

Monday: Sunshine and a few clouds. High 24-31.

Monday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 4-11.

Tuesday: Partly sunny. High 30-37.

Tuesday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 21-28.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. High 38-45.

Thursday: Cloudy with rain developing, changing to sleet and/or freezing rain across the interior. High 39-46.

Friday: Wintry mix possibly ending as snow. Temperatures dropping into the 20s and 30s during the day.

Saturday: Becoming partly to mostly sunny. High 18-25.

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds. High 25-32.
