Thursday will see high temperatures in the middle 40s with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Clouds will start to clear in the afternoon before we see plenty of sunshine into Friday and the weekend. We’ll be slightly cooler tomorrow before temperatures jump into the middle 50s this weekend. The last day of January will see a high of 60 before we enter into a more active weather pattern as we enter into February. This will lead to cooler conditions and many chances of rain and snow into next week. We’ll keep you updated on locations, timings and totals as we get closer.
Temperatures today will be slightly warmer than yesterday, but clouds will increase by this evening ahead of a small system that will bring some flurries into the Four States between 8pm-12am tonight. Impacts are not expected, and at most, we could see a light dusting on grassy and elevated surfaces by Thursday morning. Temperatures will warm into the 40s through the end of the week before soaring well into the 50s this weekend and into early next week. The first day of February is next Tuesday, and the month will begin well above average, but precipitation will be above average, as well, as we are expected to enter into an active weather pattern next week.
Yesterday, we hit highs in the lower 60s–today, we’ll be luckily to warm above freezing. Temperatures will be about 30 degrees cooler than yesterday, and wind chills will remain between 10-25 degrees throughout Tuesday as high temperatures near 32 this afternoon. Tomorrow morning will likely be the coldest of the week with lows in the 10s and single digit wind chills. A small shortwave system could bring some of us a few flurries late tomorrow night into Thursday morning, but no accumulations or impacts are expected at this time. We should warm back into the 50s this weekend, with above average temperatures expected through the end of January.
Enjoy temperatures in the upper 50s this afternoon, because conditions will be much cooler by tomorrow. A cold front will pass over us late Monday, and temperatures will fall to near 20 degrees by Tuesday morning. We’ll only warm into the lower 30s tomorrow afternoon and the middle 30s by Wednesday. We’re watching two small systems that will likely pass to our south, but if their tracks change, we could see some precipitation in Thursday. We’ll keep you updated if that changes, but right now, it looks like the Four States will stay dry through this week. Temperatures should warm into the 50s again by this weekend.
The forecast for your Friday in the Four States can be described in one phrase: warmer, but still cold. We’ll see sunny skies and calm winds with high temperatures in the middle 30s as a warming trend begins. We’ll warm into the 50s by Sunday and Monday before a cold front will pass over the Four States Monday night. This will drop temperatures into the 30s through the middle of next week, and precipitation chances should remain primarily south of the Four States. This will be something to monitor though, because if the path of this system changes, we could see rain transition to snow by Tuesday morning. Temperatures will warm back to near average by next Thursday.
After yesterday’s cold front, temperatures and wind chills are COLD today. We’ll only warm into the 20s this afternoon with wind chills likely not lifting above 10 degrees or so today. Temperatures will cool into the single digits overnight as northerly winds begin to calm. Friday will be sunny with temperatures reaching the 30s before a warming trend leads us into the weekend. We’ll see highs reach the 50s by Sunday and Monday before another cold front cools us below average into at least the middle of next week. Right now, it looks like the Four States will stay dry with the passage of this early week cold front, but we’ll keep you updated if that changes.
After temperatures hit the lower 60s yesterday, winter makes its return to the Four States today. High temperatures are in the upper 30s, and those will be met in the morning hours. We’ll drop into the middle 20s this afternoon. Precipitation is expected to form along I-44 as rain in the mid-morning hours and then transition to snow by the early afternoon. This would likely just be light flurries that wouldn’t last more than an hour or two. Also note that this will only impact areas SOUTH of I-44. The furthest northern areas that could see some flurries are Dade county. Most of Jasper and Ottawa counties will stay dry, as a wintry mix and snow will impact areas south and east of them. Everyone will be dry by sunset, but if you’re traveling in those areas during the afternoon commute, it will be important to pay attention to the radar.
Northerly winds up to 30 MPH today will drop temperatures into the single digits tomorrow morning, and wind chills will be below zero to begin Thursday. We’ll only warm into the 20s tomorrow afternoon before getting back into the 50s by Monday. Another cool down is set for next Tuesday.
Today (Tuesday) will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 50s thanks to some sunshine and southerly wind gusts up to 25 MPH. Those winds will shift out of the north overnight with the passage of a cold front, and temperatures will quickly fall not only overnight, but through Wednesday, as well. Temperatures will continue to fall until they hit the single digits on Thursday morning. Wednesday afternoon could see a few flurries mainly south of I-44 with a trace of accumulation possible, but impacts look to be minimal to none. Expect cold temperatures through the end of the week before we warm back above average by the start of next week.
After a cold and cloudy weekend, snow will finally have a chance to melt today and tomorrow. Temperatures will warm into the upper 40s this afternoon and the upper 50s tomorrow, with help from a southwesterly wind gust up to 25 MPH Tuesday. A cold front will pass over us in the early morning hours of Wednesday, where temperatures will promptly cool through the end of the week. This cold front will bring precipitation to our southeast, so right now, it looks like we will stay dry through this week. Temperatures will warm back into the lower 40s by the weekend.
Friday will still be warm, just cloudy ahead of tomorrow’s snow system. This system will begin as rain near midnight tonight, and it will quickly transition to snow before sunrise Saturday morning. Temperatures will be at or below freezing through much of Saturday, so snow will persist through the afternoon, finally coming to an end for everyone by the early evening. 1-3″ of snow are possible once all is said and done, and higher totals should remain to our east. Winds will also gust up to 35 MPH through Saturday, allowing for wind chills to be in the lower 20s. Watch for any untreated roadways by Sunday morning, as they will likely freeze with temperatures dropping into the 10s. We’ll warm back into the 50s by Tuesday before a slight rain chance to our east Wednesday could cool us down below average by the end of next week.
