Welcome Back, Winter

January Thaw 2013

Saturday’s sunrise had some spectacular colors. Those of us who caught this glimpse just before dawn saw the vibrant colors for just a moment.

The cold air is gusting back into the region as I type and the January thaw is done. That isn’t to say that there will not be days above freezing, but temperatures have moderated and will be in our normal range of 20’s and 30’s for this week. Greater consensus continues to build for even greater cold weather later in the month and into February. Some meteorologists believe this will be the coldest weather we have seen since 1994. Others have compared it to 1985.

Morgantown might see some light snow on Tuesday but most of the region will not see snow, again, before next weekend. I am keeping my eye on the weather models for what appears to be a moderate snow event for next sometime between the 18th-21st.
