Weather update from WTOC meteorologist John Wetherbee

February 8, 2013 

We got much-needed rain yesterday, but we're back to dry weather for the weekend. A second cold front will swing through our area this afternoon with little fanfare: just a wind-change and some drier, cooler air. Temperatures in the low 40s are expected overnight.

No worries for Saturday or Sunday: forecasts call for highs in the low and mid 60s. Sunday into Monday will be windy. A new Canadian cold front is expected at the start the work week. It will enter the area and stall, setting up a favorable wet pattern for the region with low pressure systems developing over the Gulf moving through our area. A high pressure system should clear all that out later in the week. Meteorologist John Wetherbee, CBM
