Mostly sunny skies and standard January temperatures for MLK Day

/ January 17, 2021 at 10:55 PM

No weather concerns for Monday as we pause to reflect on the life and message of Martin Luther King, Jr. High temperatures will top out in the mid-50s — a click or two under January normals — despite mostly sunny skies with high pressure firmly in place. This year is certainly going to be very different with virtual events due to the ongoing pandemic, but any virtual events being held outdoors will probably have more trouble with Wi-Fi than weather.

We look to remain rain-free until at least Thursday when low pressure and its associated cold front approach from the west. Ahead of the front, we’ll be in a warming trend, with highs getting into the 60s by Wednesday. I’ll have more on the rest of the work week’s forecast in tomorrow night’s post.
