Sunday Update - Spring Showers Still To Come...Cold Air Rides In Quicker

We're still in line for more rain today, but a return to something more reminiscent of January comes in as early as tomorrow.

Welcome to Sunday!

I hope everyone has been able to sample some of this unseasonably warm weather we've been having. We've got another day of it for today, though not quite nearing record territory like yesterday (that part of the forecast was easy enough).

Just like the past several days, the moisture zone is oriented from southwest-to-northeast. We still are not quite to the actual front yet, so we should be expecting warm sector weather. Highs will once again be 25-degrees above normal or so, with scattered showers increasing during the day. Some rumbles of thunder will also be in the mix in some of those shower clusters you can track on the radars below. By tomorrow though, the front finally scoots eastward enough to make some drastic changes to our weather.

It never takes as long to get used to the out-of-season warmth as it does getting back to the normal business of a January day, right? Well, unfortunately we never quite get to the wintry weather per-se, except for that borderline chill of the 30s and 40s. Most of the moisture stays with the frontal zone as it gets hung up in the mountains, just out ahead of the coldest air.

Waterlogged places in Ohio and Kentucky can take a break and watch someone else take the brunt for a change. The southern WV mountains will be in line for the bulk of the disturbances that are still chaining their way up through here as that action zone focusing the moisture very sluggishly finishes out. By the time we're done, it'll be just a very puddly time around here, but with little in the way of flooding. We will have also had nearly a week straight with rain in the forecast.

Still no deep cold nor good snows on the near-term horizon.
