Skies are partly cloudy early on this Christmas morning and temperatures range from the mid 30s in the Clifton area to the upper 20s further inland, winds are light.
High pressure will be in control of our weather today giving us plenty of sunshine with mild temperature reaching the upper 40s, although this is above normal it will not be as mild as the last two Christmas Days when highs were in the 60s.
A low pressure and cold front will be approaching our area on Monday likely giving us rain that may begin as a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain well inland before changing to plain rain which will end on Tuesday morning. Tuesday will be quite mild with highs in the 50s.
High pressure will give us a dry day on Wednesday with cooler temperatures.
Another low pressure will give us a chance of mainly rain on Thursday followed by colder and dry weather for Friday and New Year’s Eve.
