Weather Words: January 31

We close out January on a mild note, start February with springlike conditions, and look to the weekend for some changes in the mild weather.

We're still shaking, rattling, and rolling...

Another aftershock happened near Louisa & Mineral yesterday around 6:40 PM; this one measured 3.2 on the Richter Scale. More information from the USGS can be found by clicking here.

Like yesterday's weather? You'll love today's. We keep the sunshine but warm nearly fifteen degrees, and we should peak in the upper 60s across all of central VIrginia. For what it's worth, the record high for today in Charlottesville is 68° set back in 1974. My forecast high is 67°. We're gonna be close!

There will be one more day of mild weather on Wednesday before a cold front moves through late in the evening. This front will give us a few light rain showers overnight into early Thursday morning. Temperatures will gradually cool into the weekend, but we'll still be above our seasonal normals.

The mild winter marches on. Sorry, skiiers, still no snow in the forecast.

3, 2, 1, fade out.
