High pressure building into our area from the west will give us a mostly sunny day. Winds will be gusty this morning and slowly diminish this afternoon. High temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher than on Saturday, but it still will be a cold January day.
Slightly milder on Monday and we should see an increase in clouds by the afternoon, winds will be much lighter than this weekend.
A weak low pressure will likely give us mainly light snow on Tuesday with possible accumulations of 1-3 inches.
After a dry and seasonably cold Wednesday another stronger storm is expected to develop off the Carolina coast and move northeast on Thursday but at this time models have the system too far south to give our area any significant precipitation.
Dry and seasonably cold weather for Friday and Saturday but still another low pressure may give us some precipitation on Sunday.
