Overview: Sunday night's event will likely be mainly rain with perhaps a little snow.

Details: (Posted at 9 PM on Thursday 1/29) The trend that we have been seeing all winter continues, as a potential winter storm from Sunday afternoon into Monday morning is now likely to just be a cold rain event. There is still some uncertainty with this system, and we could see a period of snow either at the onset of precipitation Sunday afternoon, or as the precipitation is winding down Monday morning. If there is any accumulating snow, it will most likely be Monday morning--but even that isn't overly likely.

We have another chance of seeing rain and/or snow from Wednesday night into Thursday, so that's the next system to keep an eye on. Time will tell if it could become our first winter storm of the season, or if it will continue to follow the ongoing trend and turn out to be mainly a cold rain event.

Looking into the first half of February, I think temperatures will continue to be a little below normal, and while the potential for a winter storm certainly exists, there aren't any overwhelming signs of one at the present time.
