Let the cool down commence!

We had one last day basking with temperatures of 60 or better as the high was 63 degrees(set at 11:51am). The catch was that it was raining throughout the day so you really couldn't enjoy it much, but when our average high should be 43 and don't have to wear that heavy winter coat many people don't mind it. As for rain today we did have around a half of an inch(0.48" as of the climate summary that was issued before 5pm) throughout the day, but that is now pushing to the east and offshore.

For Christmas Eve after starting off with temperatures on either side of freezing we will have sunshine give way to clouds by the afternoon as a piece of mid-level energy will push through and gives us a chance of some rain showers with highs in the lower 40s; as the sun sets and temperatures cool we may see a changeover to some snow showers with little accumulation(there's not much moisture to deal with anyway so if you wanted a White Christmas, it's not happening!). That gets out of here before Midnight and this will usher in colder air with lows just around the lower 20s(suburbs may get down into the middle teens!) and highs on Christmas just in the middle 30s with sunshine, but a gusty northwest wind. If you have travel plans on Thursday getting back home there will be some clouds as another system passes by to the north, but this time the moisture stays to the north and we'll have highs in the middle 40s.

Have a great night and Merry Christmas; you can check out the 7-day forecast any time at
