While warm weather dominates across the Southeast, it won’t be around forever. This week will be the last period of time in the foreseeable future for such unprecedented January warmth in the Southeast. It will be continued mild into this coming weekend, but then on Sunday or so is when our pattern is expected to change to cold. Monday the 20th may be the first day when we see a shift to below-normal temperatures for a change.
The GEFS ensembles have us quite cold into later this month. The last week of the month appear to be significantly below normal. This could mean snow chances south of DC, but nothing is guaranteed. But the cold will be there for any moisture to tap into. With the Gulf being wide open for business, all it would take is a system scooting across the Deep South and up the coast. We would see snow in the Carolinas more likely in NC than SC except for the Upstate. But you never know in the South during the winter time. Winter storms seem to take their own tracks. But if there is a favorable pattern, from the 21st to the 31st would be the timeframe I would watch.
It is, with fairly high confidence, going to be cold after the 20th. Snow chances are not yet known. But this is a sign of potential good news for cold and snow lovers, but for now, more for cold lovers.
