CLOUDS EXPECTED THRU CHRISTMAS WEEK, WINTRY MIX AHEAD
Any glimpse of sunshine you happen to see yesterday will likely be the last we see until Christmas Day. Plenty more clouds will blanket our skies once again this weekend, though no organized moisture to be concern about except for some patchy drizzle by Sunday. Fortunately, these clouds will carry some slightly better temperatures with afternoon highs in the upper 30s. This will even extend through Monday.
However, it will be these clouds on Monday that will bring on next round of moisture. The activity is still expected to be a light rain event that day with a few spots possibly seeing some snowflakes mixed in. Roadways that day may be wet but not even close to being icy.
System responsible for the light rain on Monday will intensify as it drifts off to the eastern Great Lakes. This will be a wind-chilly machine heading into Christmas Eve as it carries a few snow showers from time to time across the area.
Conditions will calm down on Christmas Day as we’ll see a fair glimpse of that sun once again and daytime highs just above the freezing mark.
Have a great weekend, everyone!!
