St. John Valley weather for Jan. 22-28, 2020
Short-Term Outlook: Wednesday – Friday
The ridge of high pressure that has brought chilly conditions to the Valley will move east of the region today with moderating temperatures. Mostly cloudy skies will develop after midnight as a warm front moves across the area with some snow flurries possible overnight.
Partly sunny skies are expected Thursday as high pressure continues to move east. A cold front dropping down from the north/northwest produces mostly cloudy skies Thursday night into Friday with little precipitation expected from this system. Friday remains partly sunny/mostly cloudy as high pressure builds down from the north. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Friday–in the mid-20s–than Thursday’s heat wave in the low 30s.10
