Skies are partly cloudy early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures are mostly in the mid to upper 20s across the area, winds are mainly calm.
High pressure will give us dry conditions with seasonably cool temperatures today into the day on Thursday.
A low pressure system will move into the area late Thursday night with rain developing possibly starting off as a wintery mix over the higher elevations well inland. A warm front will move through the area Friday morning with temperatures rising well up into the 50s. Rainfall amounts should average around one inch.
High pressure will then be in control of our weather over the weekend. Saturday will still be mild but become colder on Sunday.
Dry weather should persist on New Year’s Eve but a weak disturbance will give us a chance of rain or snow on New Year’s Day.
Last year after Christmas we had two straight weeks of bitterly cold weather and the temperatures never rose above freezing with many low temperatures in the single digits.
