The clouds will remain across our area this evening, but will start to break up overnight. That will allow temperatures to lower back into the mid and upper 20s prior to sunrise. Tomorrow looks like a nice mid-December day. There will be plenty of sunshine, with afternoon highs rebounding into the mid and upper 40s. The Winter Solstice occurs tomorrow evening at 6:03 P.M.
We’re busy tracking a developing storm off the Southeast coast for tomorrow night and Monday. It will likely bring some rain beginning Monday morning, arriving from south to north. The typically favored cold locations to the north and west might have some sleet or freezing rain at the start if the precipitation can reach these areas early enough. We don’t expect a lot of rain, and the precipitation will probably be rather showery Monday afternoon.
There will be a slight break Tuesday, although a shower or two could still pop up as the wind flow becomes southerly. A powerful storm and cold front will arrive on Wednesday (the day before Christmas). Gusty south winds will usher in much milder air, with some locations jumping into the 60s. Rain is likely as early as late Tuesday night, continuing on and off Wednesday. The gusty winds will shift from the south to the northwest Christmas Eve, putting a bit of a chill in the air later at night. Christmas Day looks dry, breezy and cool with daytime highs in the upper 40s and low 50s.
Friday and Saturday will be quite mild, with a decent amount of sunshine. However, clouds will be on the increase next Saturday afternoon and there may be a few late day showers as the next cold front arrives from the west.
