Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 7:02AM

Light Rain Tonight

Today is rather ho-hum with thickening clouds this afternoon. Light rain returns tonight into early Thursday possibly mixed with a few wet snowflakes. Tomorrow and Friday are a shade cooler with more light rain returning Friday night into Saturday. A warming trend commences Sunday and the gloves come off in terms of runaway warmth early next week.

Forecast Discussion

The weather workload this week continues to be overly complicated for not a lot of sensible weather. A quick disturbance moves along the Gulf Coast tonight producing light rain that ends early Thursday morning. It's possible a few wet flakes mix-in, but that would be it.

Thursday and Friday remain mostly cloudy and cool. Another area of low pressure develops in the northern Gulf Friday night and Saturday heading east/northeast. Precipitation timing and duration is still in question, but for now, we have some light rain penciled-in Friday night, ending Saturday morning or afternoon.

Sunshine returns Sunday, every weather enthusiasts favorite holiday. Temperatures make big strides Sunday afternoon followed by an unseasonably warm Monday (and Tuesday but to a lesser extent) influenced by a deep and increasingly moist southwest flow. Clouds increase Monday night with light rain possible late and into the day Tuesday in advance of an approaching cold front. The front moves through Wednesday and most of next week's rain is tied closer to the front late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
