January Thaw Comes Early, So It Seems

January 1, 2013; 8:39 AM ET


With the PNA going back to negative and the NAO going negative, we are going into a two-week warming pattern starting this weekend. Looking at the long-range models, it would seem that the cold will once again come back the last week of January into February.

While we have a good snow cover across the country east of the Rockies, we are probably going to lose a lot of the snow cover over the next two weeks.

I am having trouble trying to find any significant snow event for the next two weeks. The GFS suggests that we may have big storm in the Plains around the 12th, but given the ups and downs of the models lately, I am not relying on that just yet.

So for now, it's January thaw weather coming for a couple of weeks before winter sets back in.
