North Florida will be under mostly clear skies for the rest of this week. Temperatures should be conducive to enjoy outdoor activities through the weekend. There is a slight chance for some light showers on Saturday, but they should not last the whole day. Our region remains dominated by high pressure giving us the clear skies, but also allowing for additional radiational cooling that will allow our evening temperatures to float around the 40 degree mark and occasionally dip into the upper 30s.
A large trough will be moving across the country towards the end of the week, but it looks like our area will be spared from the majority of the associated activity. This trough will provide us with the small chance of rain on Saturday, but the cold air accompanying it should hang to the north and leave us with seasonal temperatures while much of the rest of the eastern half of the nation will be below normal.
Extended Outlook -
Our next big shot at precipitation comes towards the end of next week, when a cold front will bring with it abundant moisture and the possibility of rainfall totals in inches across Florida. Following that a potentially more intense storm is taking shape in the models for the February 6th timeframe that will also bring some significant snow totals across the Midwest into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
