We are nearing the end of January and we are receiving the coldest air of the season and the coldest in 2 years, as arctic air has rushed in from the North Pole. The frigid air will continue to keep us in its clutches right into the weekend!
We will have a warming trend by the beginning of next week which will bump temps back up into the normal range for this time of the year. It won't last long. By February, forecast models are trending towards a dip in the jet stream occurring over the Mid-Atlantic which means colder temperatures.
The cold air has arrived, now all we need is the moisture and we will get some snow! We have two chances this week for the white stuff. The first is overnight tonight into tomorrow morning, as a clipper system will move through bringing the potential for a dusting to an inch of snow. The better chance for more snow comes this Friday as a storm develops out west and treks across the nation bringing us the possibility of 1-2 inches.
