January Thaw (Sort of…)

Don’t get too excited. The thaw probably won’t last longer than a day and don’t think you’ll be able to head out and play some frisbee either. A burst of heavy rain will accompany the brief thaw before we cool down again.

Our computer models are honing in on an “inside runner” storm for next Tuesday. Though this will likely start out as snow or ice it looks like it will flip to rain everywhere with a track west of Connecticut. Thankfully we are not talking about enough rain or warmth to cause flooding (like January 1996) but the snowpack will certainly take a beating.

No sustained period of above normal warmth seems likely in the near future.
