Early Friday AM December 9th Update – We’ll Start A Little Warm Up This Weekend

Good early Friday morning, everyone. Winter doesn’t officially start for another 12 days, but Mother Nature brought the season in a little early. After we had a little taste of snow on Wednesday, we kept things cold for the past few days. We had highs in the middle 30s with the snow on Wednesday and we were even colder yesterday with highs in most spots near 30°. Even though we stay cold tonight, we keep things quiet on the radar below…

We’ll actually warm things up a bit starting today, but we just need to get past another cold start this morning. With clear skies around and a light breeze, that will allow lows to start around 12° before sunrise…

Thankfully, we’ll get our wind back out of the south by late morning and into the afternoon. It’ll still be a cold day with mostly sunny skies, but temperatures will start to swing back up. Afternoon highs should top out around 33°…

As far as Saturday is concerned, we’ll keep things dry as skies eventually turn partly sunny. After another cold start in the 20s Saturday morning, we should be able to get afternoon highs back into the lower 40s around here…

The increasing clouds on Saturday will hint at our next system that will move in on Sunday. With temperatures looking to stay above freezing for Sunday, we’ll stick with rain chances as we go through the day…

After that system clears out of here, we should be dry and cool for Monday. Another system will pass through on Tuesday. That could give us a few snow showers mainly late Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning, but that front will mainly send us back into the cold. We may not be able to get out of the 20s for afternoon highs by next Wednesday, but we should go back into the middle 30s by next Thursday.

Have a great Friday, everyone!
