Despite a VERY cold start to the day, we'll finally get some appreciable warming this afternoon. A high pressure system to our northeast and the subsequent clockwise surface flow around this system will allow our winds to become a bit southeasterly today. The response from thermometers to these winds will be near 50°. This is about 10° below average but it may just feel warm compared to where we've been! Perhaps even better news is that we WILL NOT refreeze this overnight. Lows will be around 40° and with those southerly winds tracking over the cold ground, some fog will form and could become dense in some areas.
Friday, high pressure will drift to Georgia and Florida. Due east of us, winds should be just about due south and we'll quickly pump highs above average, into the middle 60s. While there may be some clouds, we'll also see times of sunshine and the week is expected to wrap up on a dry note. Beyond this, it looks as though we will shift into an active, but milder pattern.
