A very pleasant Groundhog Day! Quite mild on Wednesday with rain!


Skies are clear early this Tuesday morning and although it is cooler than this time of year readings are still above normal ranging from the mid 30s here in Clifton to the mid 20s further inland, winds are light.

Today will be a very nice day with plenty of sunshine, light winds and high temperatures approaching the 50 degree mark.  It will not be a “repeat” of last year’s Groundhog Day when we received 7 inches of snow.

A storm system will be moving to the Great Lakes as a warm front associated with the system passing to our north tomorrow morning followed by a cold front late at night.  Rain will develop in the morning and become heavy at times before tapering off in the evening, expect around 1 1/4″ of rainfall, temperatures will rise to near 60 degrees.

Clearing will take place on Thursday and it will still be mild as there will not be much cold air behind the system, highs will be around 50.

Dry weather will continue Friday through the weekend with temperatures continuing to be slightly above normal.

My guess is that Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow and we will have six more weeks of winter.   And the computer models are also indicating quite cold weather the end of next week into the following weekend.
