NOT AS CHILLY TONIGHT
WARMER TEMPS BRING SHOWERS
A frontal system sets up shop just to our west keeping us on the mild side of the system. Areas of low pressure ride through the Great lakes bring waves of showers. So with the milder temperatures comes rain. First threat for showers holds off until Friday evening and most will not see any rain. Showers will be isolated. Highs will warm into the upper 40s. Saturday will be mainly cloudy with a chance for showers but not a complete washout by any means so if you have shopping or running around to do, just keep the umbrella handy. Best chance to see a shower pop up Saturday will be late afternoon to the evening. It will be much warmer with highs in the low 50s.
RECORD BREAKING HIGHS SUNDAY?
Sunday lows will start out very mild in the low 50s and despite the clouds; the flow out of the west-southwest will boost our temps to the mid 60s or better. The record on Sunday is 64 and it looks like we could hit it. Plenty of dry hours for the beginning part of the day but rain will be possible later in the afternoon, especially in the evening.
Right now it looks like colder air returns early next week. Monday the clouds will be clearing and temperatures look to fall through the day into the low to mid 40s.
Christmas Eve morning lows return to the 20s with highs struggling to warm through the 30s but it will be dry as high pressure dominates the area. Not looking like a white Christmas either. It will be cold with lows in the mid 20s and highs in the upper 30s. But it will be dry with plenty of sunshine.
Make it a great evening!
