I hope nobody got too comfortable this week, as a rare event took place on Tuesday and Wednesday when temperatures soared into the lower 60s. Many areas either tied or fell short by just a hair from record high temperatures.
This winter has been known to play tricks on us: for example, the Nor'easter that shattered snowfall records which occured on October 27 to October 28. After that, "snow" was more like a "no" as the region recieved around an extra 3 to 5 inches since then. Being a snow-lover myself, I find this winter to be quickly depressing.
As far as this weekend goes, a high-pressure system over the Ohio Valley region will bring mostly sunny to clear skies today, as high temperatures will rise to the mid 40s.
Don't forget, it is still winter even though it hasn't felt like it lately. As night falls, expect temperatures to drop into the lower 30s with a few passing clouds.
Saturday will consist of partly to mostly cloudy skies as the low pressure that is currently bringing a blizzard in the Midwest will pass to our south.
Don't worry, there is nothing near wintry precipitation heading our way. You can thank the jet stream for that one.
The high temperatures will hover in the mid-40s, but depending on the timing of increased cloud cover, the temperatures may vary. If it becomes mostly cloudy to overcast by early afternoon, expect temperatures to hug the 40 degree mark.
Super Bowl Sunday will be a great day for travel as another high pressure system in the Ohio Valley will move in a southeastern direction toward Virginia.
Partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the mid 40s are the perfect ingredients to the classic Super Bowl festivities with family and friends.
As for next week the same weather patterns seem to be consistant, but keep posted as more information will be updated!
