Springlike Saturday

Weekend Forecast

Today we get treated to another fantastic Saturday -- the second in a row. The day will start off chilly -- with temperatures near 30 downtown and in the 20s in the suburbs, but should climb steadily to near 50 by noon. By the mid afternoon, temperatures should peak in the mid to upper 50s with plenty of sunshine. Let the treadmill sit indoors and take a run outside.

Overnight, expect mostly clear skies with temps dropping to around 35 downtown and 30 in the suburbs. Clouds increase Sunday, with light to moderate rain showers likely in the afternoon. Temperatures will again be mild, with highs in the mid 50s.

Ding Dong, Is The Storm Dead?

There was some excitement about a potential snowstorm next Tuesday in the comment area yesterday. I remained skeptical just because the setup seemed very unusual and not ideal for snow here, although I almost got on the train when several models and some of my peers suggested it could happen. So what's the scoop?

Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Tuesday, Jan. 31
Probability: 10%
Potential Impact:
The potential coastal storm looks like it's going well out to sea given current guidance. And even if it trends back closer to the coast, temperatures are likely to favor mostly rain.

As I've written in the past, most snowstorms shown days ahead on the models do not materialize. The only time to get excited is if several models show something for consecutive runs AND the evolution/pattern depicted is "classic." What is the classic setup? Sounds like a good Friday feature (hint, hint, Camden).

Rich Weathermen
reports Al Roker (who earns a seven figure salary) celebrated his 10th anniversary with the Today Show yesterday. Meanwhile, WGN's Tom Skilling just inked a deal which according to the Chicago Sun-Times "undoubtedly boosts his seven-figure annual salary and maintains his status as the highest-paid television weatherman in the country."
