Cloudy but Warmer
Updated: Friday, December 19 at 5:55 am
We will see mostly cloudy skies again today but temperatures will be slightly warmer with highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Skies will stay cloudy tonight with some patchy fog and spotty freezing drizzle developing late tonight into early Saturday morning. Because temperatures will be below freezing some icy spots are possible. The clouds and patchy fog will stick around for Saturday with temperatures warming into the mid 30s. More patchy freezing drizzle is possible late Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
We are watching a large storm system that will impact the area early next week. Details are sketchy, but right now, it looks like some patchy drizzle and light rain will move in on Sunday. a better chance for rain comes Monday, but temperatures will fall late on Monday changing the rain over to snow. We will see windy condition with light snow or flurries Tuesday and Wednesday. It looks like Christmas day will be quiet but colder with highs in the mid to upper 20s. We'll continue to monitor the situation as we head into the holidays.
