Merry Christmas Eve, folks! Because it is Christmas Eve, I am gonna keep the post a bit shorter today.


And I am gonna use all Christmas gifs today, so get ready for the overload, because it is comin’!


The rain that was falling when you went to bed last night has moved on our of the region, leaving not-so-terrible temperatures across the region. Clouds will be our biggest adversary today, as they’ll likely hang thick through this evening and overnight.

By tomorrow, the clouds will likely still be hanging around. A warm front looks like it will move through during the late morning and early afternoon hours, ushering in a partly cloudy and warm airmass.


Highs will be approaching the record high of 70°F tomorrow, and if we get enough sunshine, we may break that record. Wouldn’t that be something!

By Monday, a shortwave trough will be approaching the region with an associated cold front at the surface. This will orient our winds from the southwest, warming temperatures into the 70s, even under clouds. Precip should move in on Monday night, officially closing out the Christmas weekend for many.
