First Alert Overnight Weather Forecast: January 26

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's going to be a docile pattern under high pressure, first from Canada but mainly from our southwest, through at least Saturday night. The northern high will be shoved aside by a cold front that will still pass to our north Saturday but, overall, the influence on our weather will really come from that southern high.

The next chance for rain will arrive during the day on Sunday as a weak low fires off from the Ohio Valley into mainly north-central New England, pulling a weak front across the region. A second low along the coastal Carolinas provides heavy rain for the Southeast. The most significant rain, while decent for all, could remain south and east again late or at night, with just about all modeling keeping a precip minimum within the mountains.

Models are having trouble handling the departure of this storm on Monday and it could be damp most or all of the morning... but we will get into a brief dry period after that before a more organized storm brings another front into the area in the Tuesday-Wednesday timeframe.

Global models diverge wildly on temperatures behind this storm, with the European bringing the Arctic push of air into the region with highs in the 30s and 20s by next weekend (which we're not biting on, for the record) but the American model maintains more seasonable numbers. We'll see what happens.

Have a great evening!
