A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

5/10: Holding out hope to see some brief snowflakes or graupel (snow grains). Conversational, if so.

Express forecast

  • Today: Partly sunny. Rain and snow showers possible. Highs: Low to mid-40s.
  • Tonight: Becoming mostly clear. Lows: Upper 20s to lower 30s.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Breezy. Highs: Mid- to upper 40s.

Forecast in detail

Following a warm and dry stretch (for January), it’s feeling more like the time of year today and over the next few. Even so, the main risk for any precipitation is today. Whatever happens is probably hit-or-miss and brief. Sunshine dominates the days to come, probably into the midweek period.

Today (Saturday): It should be mix of clouds and sun kind of day, but at times the clouds could win out, especially during peak heating in the midday and afternoon. A couple showers of rain, snow or graupel are possible. With highs in the low to mid-40s, the odds of anything more than conversational stuff are very low. Winds are from the west around five to 10 mph, with gusts near 20 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

A look ahead

Partly cloudy conditions are a good bet Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Behind a weak cold front, temperatures are in the low and mid-40s. It’s probably a bit breezy as well. Confidence: Medium

More of the same Tuesday and Wednesday for the inauguration period. We’ll need to eye a couple of fast-moving disturbances, but they seem likely to stay north and not have much moisture or impact locally. Coupled with partly cloudy skies, highs are in the low and mid-40s Tuesday, with mid- to upper 40s possible Inauguration Day. Confidence: Medium
