Today – Clearing & Breezy High: 64°
Hey! We will begin to see some clearing today as the rain pushes east away from us. There may be a few lingering showers later, but they will stay more the west/northwest of us.
Make sure to check those outside Christmas decorations throughout the day. Southerly winds at 10 to 20 mph will be breezy this afternoon with gusts up to 25 mph. This is all due to the lingering strong pressure gradient at the surface as the surface low moves northeast.
Tuesday – Plenty of Sunshine Waking Up: 43° High: 63°
We will see a break in the clouds tomorrow as the low pressure continues to push northeast. The southerly winds will calm down in the morning on Tuesday.
It will be overall pleasant for a December day with high temperatures in the low 60s.
Temperatures remain 10° to 15° above normal for this time of year. Once the evening arrives, clouds will increase in our area.
Wednesday – The Rain Returns. Waking Up: 45° High: 66°
Our rain chances begin to rise on Wednesday afternoon as a surface low develops in the Gulf then moves northeast. There will also be a surface low to the west that will accelerate northeast over Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. With this low, a cold front will move over the south central U.S. and push east. The Euro and NAM weather models seem to agree on timing while the GFS is a little slower.
For now, expect some isolated showers to move over the area after lunchtime. Then by the evening another band of the showers will drift east over the area. Not anticipating anything strong or severe.
Showers will linger into the morning hours on Thursday.
After all that, it will finally feel more like December as the cold front drops temperatures late this week.
Extended: Temperatures cool rapidly near normal for this time of year. Lows will be near or at the freezing mark. High temperatures will only reach the upper the 40s on Friday.
