Hello blog world!
We're ringing in the new year, and almost a year since Mallory's Weather Blog was born! Aren't you excited?!
That being said, I've covered a lot of winter topics in that time. I'm leaving the floor open for questions and discussion topics from you!
Taking a lot into the new year, we start off rather warm as a powerful system develops to our west. This, combined with high pressure off the Carolina coast will bring warmer than average temperatures to our region via a southerly breeze. Temperatures will even top out in the 60's Saturday in some parts of the Commonwealth!
For those itching for the warmer weather - it will be short lived. A cold front will move through our area on Sunday, bringing a chance of showers and cooler air. By Monday, temperatures will be back to our seasonal averages with sunshine.
Something to watch for - models are indicating a very active southern stream (or subtropical jet stream - we talked about this in my first blog!) through the beginning of January. This means that the probably of a coastal storm increases and we're keeping our eyes on Jan 6 - Jan 8, as models are indicating we could have some interesting weather. Too early for specifics, but it will definitely be a topic of discussion into the new year.
Anyone remember what happened years ago on January 6....? Just sayin' !
