Forecast: Windy Day With Early Morning Snow And Rain Showers

A few rain and snow showers will fall across the area this morning as storm system passes by the region. The precipitation will quickly come to an end this morning and the wind will be the weather feature you will notice most of the day. Although temperatures will be typical for the second half of December, the winds will make it feel a lot colder than that.

High pressure brings sunshine back to the area on Friday and lingers into Saturday. It’s a chilly temperatures regime, but with dry roads shoppers can take heart the weather won’t slow them down. Sunday is a cloudier day and any precipitation that falls either as a rain or snow shower will be light.

It’s dry again on Monday before another storm takes shape in the center of the country.  This storm is going to propel a lot of rain and a lot of warm air into the region for Christmas eve and the first part of Christmas day. Temperatures could reach 60 degrees during this period and with a lot of rain, which could cause street and stream flooding.

The storm will depart and colder and drier air will move into the area thereafter. There’s a chance the storm ends as a bit of snow later on Christmas, but I don’t want to get your hopes up of a white Christmas even in the last few hours.  This is a warm storm, but sometimes they can bring a bit of snow on the back side before they move into Canada.

Today: Windy with a few scattered snow and rain showers early in the morning with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
