After a somewhat normal January – the high and low averages were only slight below the 30 year averages, things look to get interesting on Saturday, February the 1st. Freezing rain to the north of my home in Forsyth Missouri on Saturday and then a nice winter storm for the start of the work week! At this time, the estimates are for somewhere between a half and a full inch set to fall by early Tuesday morning. This forecast is still a bit up in the air and could swing from no snow to a lot of snow quite easily.
Typically the high and lows move up a bit in February – to 50 for daytime highs and 26 for lows. So, over the course of the month we might easily expect to see a few warmish days in the mid to upper sixties! Rainfall for the month should come in at around 3 inches – at least we can hope that is what happens. January was a big disappointment coming in at only an inch of precipitation.
