1/10 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook

Signs of a La Nina year really have been apparent in pattern, and now realized by the Climate Prediction Center. The winter could have some really cold snaps left in it, but dry.. more likely, not much weather for snow and usually paints to a dry lower plains! A big rain and winds storm on tap this weekend but milder temps will likely return next week.

Summary:  Wow is it warm. Kind of reminds me of last January which was warmer than this if you can believe it! The pattern is not showing signs of change, but a large wind and rain maker appears on its way for this weekend. I had real hopes this would be the pattern changer! It does not appear it will be! Canada gets colder and a strong Pacific jet just hinder our chances of a good colder weather pattern. Some encouragement is a Negative NAO possible in February based on the Climatology of La Nina patterns.
