The weather forecast for the coming week is "benign and tranquil," according to the National Weather Service.
"Temperatures will average 10 to 15 degrees above normal during the day and at night" through most of the week, if the forecast holds. The area "could even see a few days reach the 50 degree mark in the more urbanized areas."
For outdoor types, that's great. But, for most meteorologist, that's kind of a yawner, says Ryan Hanrahan in his blog, Way Too Much Weather.
"Even though this is about as dull as it gets for January there are tons of changes going on across the globe. In fact, the jet stream is about to undergo a really monstrous change between now and 10 days from now," Hanrahan says. " ... virtually every signal is banging the drum for a wholesale change of the pattern by January 15th. The odds of a significant Arctic outbreak over a portion of the country are good and the odds of a significant snowstorm in Connecticut during the last 2 weeks of January are better than normal."
