White Northeast

RIO GRANDE VALLEY:

Here are today’s high and low temperatures:

Brownsville:  70/54
Harlingen:  71/49
McAllen:  69/53

Today was mostly cloudy with mid and high clouds from Pacific moisture from an upper level low over Baja California.  This will keep skies mostly cloudy for tonight and the weekend.  Lows tonight will be in the mid-to-upper 40s with winds out of the southeast at 5-10 mph.

(1/28/2011): Tomorrow, we’ll see persistent mid and high level clouds with a few breaks here and there; it won’t be overcast.  Afternoon high temperatures will be warm and in the lower-to-mid 70s.  Winds will generally be out of the south-southeast or southeast at 8-13 mph.  Tomorrow night will be mostly cloudy with lows in the mid-to-upper 50s. Winds will be out of the southeast at 7-12 mph.

(1/29/2011): On Saturday, an upper-level trough will begin sliding towards the RGV, increasing lower-level clouds and precipitation chances.  However, I do not believe any measurable precipitation will be falling in the Valley, meaning, light rain and sprinkles will be falling, if anything does fall.  All measurable rain will be falling north of the RGV.  Afternoon highs on Saturday will be in the mid-to-upper 70s, with windy, southeast winds at  15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph in areas.  Saturday night will be cloudy with a chance (20%) of a light shower/drizzle.  Lows will be in the upper 50s/lower 60s.  Winds will be calming down between 5-10 mph.

(1/30/2011): Sunday will start off mostly cloudy in the early morning, then partly cloudy in the afternoon.  It looks to be a warm one, with afternoon highs in the upper 70s/lower 80s!  Winds will start off out of the southeast, then during the early evening, winds will be easterly at 5-10 mph.  Sunday night will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows in the mid-to-upper 50s/lower 60s.  Winds will shift again out of the southeast after midnight.

Edinburg 3-day Forecast:

(1/28/2011): 74/45…Mostly Cloudy…Winds SE at 5-10 mph
(1/29/2011): 76/56…Cloudy…20% chance of drizzle…Winds SE at 15-20 mph, G30
(1/30/2011): 80/59…Mostly Cloudy…Winds SE at 5-10 mph

REST OF THE NATION:

….Ohio Valley…

A band of snow that stretches from Lake Erie to IN will continue moving southeast tonight, dropping a few inches in its path.  A vorticity max from a 500mb trough is causing the precipitation to fall over this area and will eventually sweep through KY, VA, and NC by tomorrow and tomorrow evening.

Northeast…

The good news for the Northeast is that snow has stopped falling in most areas.  The big question is:  for how long?  No BIG amounts of snow are forecast to fall for the next 3 or 4 days, but there will be isolated snow showers from another low, coming from the west (MI area).  Although this won’t drop 12″+ of snow,  it will continue to make roads and walk areas slick, not to mention more snow to pile up.  Here are some snow amounts (in inches) from the resent storm in the northeast (7:00 pm EST 1/25/2011 through 9:00 am EST 1/27/2011):
