The next several days are going to offer some of the best, and most-tranquil weather the region has experienced in weeks. As temperatures are expected to increase dramatically — and even push toward 50 degrees by the start of next week — it will be accompanied by a quiet weather pattern.
That means no heavy, flooding rains, and no major snow events to discuss in the next 4-5 days.
According to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says snow will be a scarce commodity over the next two weeks to close out January if current model trends remain. “Temperatures should remain near or slightly above normal through most of the next week as our weather pattern remains fairly quiet,” he said in his Thursday update. “The storm systems that do enter into the region look like they will favor a path to our west keeping most of the precipitation as rain.”
He says that the overall pattern simply isn’t very favorable for such an event to take place. At this point, Montreuil says that it doesn’t even look like significant lake effect snow will shape up in the next week or so.
