Clouds return quickly Monday morning
FRIGID AND QUIET NIGHT
The day’s clouds have fizzled across the region, making for a clear evening across our region. This will allow temperatures to fall quickly into the 20s, bringing a very frigid night to the area. A weak coastal disturbance gains a little organization to the south and drifts north through the night. This increases clouds close to daybreak, and temperatures warm a little.
UNSETTLED START TO WEEK
The atmospheric pattern becomes more active next week, but it looks to bring rain chances to the area as opposed to snow chances. On Monday, a shower will be possible for the area as the weak coastal system drifts nearby. A developing storm system for the middle of the week looks to bring a good soaking to the region, and will put a damper on holiday travels for many. Tuesday, some showers are possible, but the day should not be a washout. However, Wednesday, Christmas Eve, mild temperatures and a good soaking rain are likely. Temperatures will be running above seasonable averages in the upper 40s Tuesday and in the middle 50s on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day looks quieter. Colder air plunges in behind Wednesday’s storm, bringing plenty of clouds and a few flurries or sprinkles. Highs are in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
It looks like the milder pattern remains in place heading into next weekend. Friday, expect sunshine and clouds. It’s a quiet day, with temperatures a bit above seasonal averages in the middle 40s. Saturday, a cold arrives, and draws even milder air ahead of it. High temperatures reach the upper 40s with a chance for showers. Sunday a cool down looks to happen.
Have a great week!
