Christmas Day is looking quite cold with a morning low around 15 degrees and a high near freezing. A few weak disturbances are passing by to our north which may spark a few snow showers. Isolated snow showers are also possible Tuesday night which may lay down a light dusting in some spots by early Christmas morning.
With highs near freezing during the afternoon, there will be a lower chance for accumulation in any isolated snow showers. However a light dusting in a heavier snow shower cannot be ruled out. Skies will begin to clear out somewhat after sunset.
One last disturbance will pass through early Thursday morning bringing a brief shot at some light snow. Once again, a light dusting may occur in any heavier snow showers. You can expect some sunshine for the rest of the day and highs in the middle 30s.
The quiet weather pattern will last through the rest of week but some warmer air is on the way. Highs will head close to 40 on Friday and surge into the upper 40s for Saturday! A big cold front will quickly put an end to that on Sunday however.
As discussed yesterday, it appears as though another major outbreak of arctic air is in the works for the New Year’s holiday. This is all still a week away, but just something to watch for on the horizon.
