Today we were underneath mostly cloudy skies, it seems like we’ve been underneath those clouds for some time. The clouds cut off our heat source during the day, which is why we only reached a high of 31 today however, at night, they act to keep us warmer by trapping in that heat. Which is why our overnight low was only a few degrees cooler than our day time high.
We have been seeing southerly winds due to a high pressure system moving off to our east and our winds are out of the south, which will allow us to warm up on Sunday. A warm front, associated with a weak system, will move through on Saturday, keeping skies cloudy. As it lifts northward, we’ll see a little more sunshine, still underneath partly cloudy skies, for Sunday allowing us to warm up to almost 40 before we cool down with another system moving through starting Sunday night.
That system will start off as rain or mixed precipitation, depending on how far south you live, then, as cold air pours in behind the passing cold front, the precipitation will change over to all snow and will last through Tuesday. The snow will be light, maybe accumulating 1-2”. For the next seven days, after the weekend, we’ll see more activity with the first system moving through Sunday night and lasting through Tuesday, we’ll remain quiet and cool down for Christmas Eve and Christmas before another system moves through bringing another chance for snow by next weekend.
