Today was much warmer then yesterday. We reached an average high 54 degrees today. Tomorrow (Wednesday) will be even warmer. Though tonight's low will be in the mid 20's, the worst seems to be over.
As we get closer to the end of the week, we will be watching an area in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico move our way. This will enhance our rain chances beginning Friday evening through Saturday and lessening on Sunday.
Though temperatures do moderate due to this next system, we can say goodbye to the deep freeze of January 2010.
Long range even shows some low 70's a few times before the end of the month.
So we're going back to average temperatures. Something everyone can enjoy. This will be a January we will remember. Not just because of how cold it was. But mainly by the duration of 11 days.
This weeks forecast update:
Tuesday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 25. Northwest wind around 5 mph. Some areas of frost after 12 am. A hard freeze warning is in affect until 10 am Wednesday. (Dark blue on the image)
