Late Friday PM December 18th Update

Good Friday evening, folks. Some spots actually ended last night with a few rain drops and even a few snow flurries mixing in. Today wasn’t so bad with mostly sunny skies. After we had a cold start around 20°, we managed to get afternoon highs back in the lower to middle 40s. Even though we had a few spots of drizzle/flurries late last night, do we have any other systems to deal with this weekend? For tonight, we’re quiet and we’re dry on the radar below…

With quiet skies tonight, it’ll be cold once again as we start Saturday morning. We should start in the upper 20s across the region. At least that’s better than right around 20°…

After we get past the cold start Saturday morning, southerly winds will pick up and that will get us into the middle 50s for highs Saturday afternoon. We’ll keep the skies quiet and mostly sunny going through the day as well. Going into Sunday, clouds will increase ahead of the next front that will work in from the west…

This front will give us rain chances Sunday and lasting as late as Monday morning. You can see below that it’ll be mainly scattered showers. Nothing in the way of t-storms and certainly nothing wintry trying to mix in with this system…

After this system clears out Monday, we’ll have highs in the middle 50s for Tuesday and Wednesday. There could be a slight chance for a few showers late Wednesday due to a fast moving system, but the chances are just that… slim. Christmas Eve looks quiet and cool with partly sunny skies and highs in the middle to upper 40s. If you’re wondering about Christmas Day, it’s not looking good for those who want a white Christmas. Still, it’s not looking bad for Christmas Day. Lows start in the middle to upper 30s and highs top out near 57°. There could be a few showers late on Christmas Day, but that’s all we’re expecting for the holiday. We need to watch late next weekend, however. We’re watching for a big storm system that will work through. It does look interesting, but we’ll keep our eyes on that as we move along.

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

 

Next Saturday:  Partly sunny and chilly.

December 27th-January 2nd:

Rain and snow chances to start the week.  By the middle of the week we will dry out and warm up a bit to start the new year.

Jan 3rd-9th:

Mild with rain and some snow chances early in the week.  Colder temperatures work in for the middle of the week and stick around through the second half of the week.
