Christmas Eve is mild for Santa! Expect temperatures in the 60s for the evening.

WARM CHRISTMAS: A storm system continues to push through, and it brings some showers to the region this morning. Most of the shower activity is finished by noon, and some clearing takes place mainly to the north. Christmas Eve afternoon temperatures are record breaking, in the upper GFX160s to lower 70s! This breaks the old record of 62 back in 1990. Skies are mostly cloudy for Christmas Day, and temperatures aren’t nearly as warm. Expect readings in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Record highs stay safe, though we are close. A few showers could try to sneak in closer to the evening.

 

 

SHOWERS STAY: Beyond Christmas, we keep daily shower chances throughout the weekend. Temperatures continue to run well above seasonal averages for this time of year. Expect readings in the middle 50s Saturday, and then in the upper 50s to lower 60s on Sunday.

 

 

NEXT WEEK: A brief reprieve from the wet weather slips on Monday as an area of high pressure slides into the region. It brings some chilly, with readings in the 40s. Tuesday it’s back to shower chances, with afternoon temperatures back near 50 degrees. Expect some more sunshine for the area Wednesday.

 

 

Have a Merry Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!
