mid-winter issues... (pm.09.jan.17)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 35.6F (2.0C)
High temp: 44.6F (7.0C)
Precipitation: trace

November precipitation: NONE
December precipitation: 0.26" (7mm)
January precipitation: 3.96" (10.1cm)

The coldest pocket of air of this entire winter season thus far continues to linger just to our northwest.  It's extremely cold in the upper-levels of the atmosphere, and a weak low pressure circulation aloft will swing overhead tonight through Tuesday, carrying that cold air with it.  Although there is much less moisture available than there was between Friday and early Sunday, we could see some isolated to scattered rain and/or snow shower development overnight and Tuesday, in the midst of variably cloudy skies.

A bit of temperature moderation is expected by Thursday or Friday, but even then we should stay close to the normal range for January.
