A Look at the First Week of the New Year

Jason Samenow @ 1:29 AM

The first week of the New Year will be unsettled, but unremarkable. It will begin relatively mild and wet and end cold and dry. Not expecting any big storms and still no sign of snow. Here are the daily details...

The Week Ahead

Today -- Rain moves in by noon, and will continue through the evening. It may be moderate at times, and we could see 0.5" or so fall. The rain should hold high temperatures in the mid 40s. All in all, a good shopping day. Rain will continue overnight, but coverage and intensity will decrease, with lows near 40.

Tomorrow will be cloudy, with just a slight chance of a few showers as the culprit low pressure system moves northeastward. Temperatures should again be in the mid to upper 40s. As has been the case with the last several departing storms, the air in its wake will be no colder than the air ahead of it.

On Wednesday, we'll be in between low pressure systems, leaving us high and dry with some sunshine returning. High temperatures should range from 45-50 after a chilly morning low near 30 (mid to upper 20s in the suburbs).

As a cold front crosses the area Thursday, we could see a few showers, but heavy precipitation is not expected. High temperatures will again be in the mid to upper 40s after morning lows ranging from the low 30s in the suburbs to the upper 30s inside the beltway.

Friday and Saturday will be partly sunny but significantly colder as some Canadian air returns. Highs Friday will be near 40 and only in the mid 30s on Saturday. Friday morning's low will be near 30 (20s in the suburbs) whereas Saturday's morning low will be in the low 20s (and 15-20 in the suburbs)

On Sunday, a modest warming trend may commence as winds shift to more southerly. High temperatures may reach the low 40s after starting the day in the 20s.

The average high this week is in the mid 40s and the average low is in the upper 20s.
