Skies are cloudy early on this Monday morning and there is some scattered mixed precipitation in parts of the area, temperatures range from the low 30s in the Clifton area down to the upper 20s further inland, winds are mainly calm.
A weak warm front is causing overcast skies this morning along with some scattered mixed precipitation. By this afternoon we may see some sunshine and it will be milder than the last few days with temperatures reaching well up into the 40s.
Dry weather will persist on Tuesday with even milder temperatures with readings in the 50s.
A cold front will come through dry Tuesday night with colder air for Wednesday and Thursday.
Milder again Friday and Saturday ahead of a strong cold front, showers are likely to develop late Friday night and extend into Saturday.
Depending on how fast the front moves through will determine our weather for Sunday and Christmas, the European model has the front staying to our west which would give our area quite mild temperatures, however the American model (GFS) has the front pushing through bringing in colder weather with even some wintery precipitation.
