Temperatures begin in the lower teens to middle 20s. There’s plentyumbrella-forecast of sunshine to start with light winds. The afternoon brings milder temperatures with increasing clouds. Highs reach the upper 30s to lower 40s. Tonight into Thursday brings our next chance for a few snow or rain showers through the early morning. A few flakes could sneak into the northwest during the afternoon in the wake of the system, but nothing that would be a bother. Expect highs in the lower to middle 40s for Thursday.




The holiday weekend looks dry with a few showers possible on Christmas Eve.

Temperatures are mild both days, with readings well into the 40s.



NEXT WEEK: Monday is even milder and looks mainly dry at this time. A few showers could sneak into the forecast, however. Temperatures are in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Tuesday our next system crosses through, bringing a better chance for showers. Readings are in the 40s.
