January is not known for its sizzle, but with three 60 degree days already, the month has been far toastier than any of us could expect.{ } Under mostly sunny skies, Saturday kept getting better by the hour.{ } When the mercury hit 68 degrees around 3 PM, spring was undeniably in the air.{ } The passage of a cold front late in the day has cooled the area this morning, but not excessively so.{ } Temperatures are{ }in the 40s with an expected afternoon high in the low 50s.{ }Even with more clouds than yesterday, this Sunday will still be a reasonably comfortable winter's day.

An approaching low will thicken clouds in the overnight hours and Monday should be mostly cloudy with highs in the{ }mid to upper 40s.{ }{ }Afternoon showers are possible, especially{ }to the south of the metro area.{ }{ }The subsequent days{ }should be increasingly milder - with another 60 degree day possible on Thursday - with rain{ }likely on Wednesday.{ } Week's end should be chillier with daytime highs in the low 40s, but snow continues to{ }be elusive!

NOTE: Last January started out with two days in the upper 50s,{ }only to turn much colder for the remainder of the month with highs only in the 30s and 40s.{ }{ }What a contrast to this year as January is almost 5 degrees above normal!{ } Enjoy your Sunday.{ }{ }{ }
