The arctic air will begin to break down today.  Winds from the south will get us to the freezing point this afternoon and we’ll be in the 40s by this weekend!

Our average high is 37, and we’ll be close to that today, but above that later in the week. We won’t contend with any arctic air for the next week!

Our weather does become more unsettled heading into the holiday weekend. We will have rain chances on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  A few rain/snow showers will be possible on Christmas Eve, but the majority of the day will be dry, with no accumulation expected.  Christmas Day and Boxing Day will be wet. We won’t see a white Christmas this year, but since we could pick up an 1″ of rain over that three day period.

Overall our weather stays quiet through Friday and then becomes more active this weekend.
