no major storms... (pm.24.jan.15)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 40.1F (4.5C)
High temp: 49.4F (9.7C)
Precipitation: none

There has been a considerable increase in high cloudiness across the area late this afternoon and evening, but sunshine was still the dominant force on this Saturday.  It was nice to have a dry day for the first time since Tuesday -- and temperatures were near or perhaps just slightly above normal for late January.

Earlier this week it had looked like we might be dealing with another wet spell from late Monday through Tuesday, but the system which will start to drop in from the west-northwest by tomorrow evening doesn't look like it's going to be able to muster up much in the way of moisture.  There could be some scattered snow showers in the higher mountains, but I'll be surprised if we see anything more than a brief isolated rain or snow shower here.  Slightly colder air will be seeping in, however, so we're going to be dealing  with temperatures dipping just a bit below average.

The remainder of the coming week will feature a marginally unstable atmosphere, with some periods of cloudiness eclipsing the sun from time to time... and at least a mentionable risk of an isolated rain/snow shower.  No significant storms will threaten for at least the next seven days or so...
