Windy and Cooler, but No Snow

Dec24blog

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Areas of rain and fog. Breezy with falling temps.
5am: 54° 6am: 54° 7am: 54° 8am: 53° 9am: 52° 10am: 49° 11am: 47°

CHRISTMAS EVE:
We look to establish an early high in the mid 50s this morning before a cold front passes through. More showers and a possible thunderstorm will accompany the front’s passage along with wind gusts of near 30 mph. As temperatures fall into the mid to upper 30s tonight, there will only be a few sprinkles left. A passing flurry is possible further north but no icy travel is expected since temperatures should remain above freezing.

CHRISTMAS DAY:
Early morning clouds will give way to a mostly sunny day with highs in the upper 40s, a few notches above normal.

FINAL WEEKEND OF 2014:
More warm air is expected Friday with highs in the 50s before another shot of cooler air moves in for Monday and Tuesday. Chances for rain exist from Saturday through early Tuesday as a front stalls across the region. Most of the precipitation will be rain but we could see a light rain to snow mix late Monday into Tuesday morning. Much colder air moves in for the start of the new year.

Merry Christmas from Chris, Shane, Kristi and Matt, your First Alert Storm Team!

Increasing clouds.

WINDY, WET & WARM:
A storm system moves into the region which will bring us lots of rain, gusty winds and even a few thunderstorms. We will start mainly dry today with a few isolated showers late this afternoon. Highs will reach into the milder mid and upper 50s. Another surge of moisture moves in tonight and during the day Tuesday. Some locations could see 1-2″ of rain between now and early Wednesday morning.

CHRISTMAS EVE:
We look to establish and early high in the upper 40s on Christmas Eve morning as a cold front passes through. As temperatures fall through the day into the lower 40s and then into the mid 30s, we could see a changeover to snow showers Wednesday evening. While the ground and roads will be too warm for any accumulating snow, the wind and snow may cause low visibility during any snow showers that occur. A few slick spots may develop Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

CHRISTMAS DAY:
Early morning clouds and flurries will give way to a mostly sunny day with highs in the mid 40s which would melt any traces of snow leftover from Christmas Eve.

FINAL WEEKEND OF 2014:
More warm air is expected Friday with highs in the 50s before another shot of cold air moves in for Saturday and Sunday. A slight chance of a rain shower is possible early Saturday morning.

Cooler Trend to Stay Awhile

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Cloudy and breezy with patchy drizzle and falling temperatures.
5am: 50° 6am: 48° 7am: 47° 8am: 46° 9am: 46° 10am: 46° 11am: 46°

COOLER AIR MOVES IN:
A weak system heads northeast of us but moisture wrapping around it keeps plenty of clouds around today along with a slight chance for a shower or two. It will be breezy with a mild start in the low 50s. Colder air moves our way through the day although we should see some partial clearing.

Wednesday looks chilly with highs in the lower 40s under partly sunny skies. Another weak disturbance may bring a slight chance for a few snow flurries late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. No accumulation is expected.

WINTRY WEATHER LATE WEEK:
A more potent system moves in late Friday into Saturday. Much is unknown with regard to the track of this one but rain is likely to develop late Friday, possibly becoming mixed with or even changing to snow early Saturday. The amount of cold air involved with the system – along with its track – will have considerable bearing on precipitation type and potential impacts toward the end of this week. Highs will range from the upper 30s to lower 40s late in the period.
