Weather update from WTOC meteorologist John Wetherbee

January 10, 2013 

It looks ugly, it feels warm and muggy, and it's not going to change quickly. A big high just offshore is dominating the Southeast and keeping storms away -- storms that want to transport cold air (typical of the winter season) into the area. Well, that's just not happening this year. The storm track continues from Texas to the Great Lakes.

And typical of the winter season, things are very static across the country. It's a split flow of active weather, quiet in the middle and all extreme cold still locked up north.

The bottom line is total confusion to the local landscapes. We'll see above-normal temperatures right through the weekend (might even set a record or two). Any rain will be light, even just some drizzle. Fog will be a bigger problem late night and early morning.
