It’s a chilly morning across the area as lows are expected to be in the mid-30s. However, south winds will be rapidly increasing this afternoon, allowing temperatures to warm up quickly.. In fact, under mostly sunny skies, temperatures could reach the upper 60s to lower 70s later today. A weak front moves across the area tonight/tomorrow, but this front won’t do much in terms of our temperatures. A temporary wind shift to the north is expected.
Another warmer day expected on Sunday with readings in the upper 60s by the afternoon. A chilly night expected Sunday night/Monday morning, as readings are expected to dip into the middle 40s.
With high pressure moving east of the area, south winds quickly return by Christmas Eve and Christmas day, leading to warm temperatures. Highs in the middle 60s Christmas Eve and in the lower 70s by Christmas day. A few isolated showers could develop on Christmas day as moisture increases in our atmosphere. This is due to a low pressure area that will be developing across the lower-plains.
This low is expected to move a front through the area Wednesday night/Thursday, increasing rain chances across the area.
Again, cold air looks to stay to our north with this front as well, but I do see signs of the pattern changing. By New Years and early January, the pattern may shift, allowing frequent Arctic intrusions and much colder air across the area.
