Typical early February weather will be arriving in the wake of the Wednesday night cold front, and seasonably cool temperatures might stick around for the majority of the next 10 days. No significant precipitation is expected through the period, allowing our January rainfall deficit to carry over into the first week of February.
THURSDAY – SUNDAY
A northwest wind flow aloft for three days will lock the cool air in place through the weekend. Daytime highs will mostly be in the 60’s and overnight lows in the 30s. The coldest morning will likely be Saturday when a light frost or freeze is possible in rural areas. Abundant sunshine is expected inland, with some periods of clouds near the First Coast at times.
Our seasonably cold air mass begins to modify early next week as the winds aloft veer more to the west. A fast wind pattern could send us some changeable weather mid-week, with a low chance a weak weather system could bring a slight chance for precipitation by Wednesday. Temperatures will fluctuate slightly, but trend slightly upward overall through the period.
