Here we go again! Another warm-up coming our way this week that will last all the way into Christmas. In fact, as the day before Christmas arrives we may be looking at a record high temperature in the low to mid 60s!
Meanwhile, as the mild air continues to move in this week we'll see a good deal of clouds and the threat for occasional showers from time to time. Thats because there'll be a series of weak low pressure systems moving by to our north and as each one passes we'll have a threat of rain developing.
First off, today will start off with a little bit of sun, but by the afternoon it will be generally cloudy with some strong gusty winds from the SW that will reach 25-35mph at times. Those winds die off tonight as the clouds break up a bit. However, BY Tuesday afternoon more showers move in and some of them could be briefly heavy, especially across the lakes region. Wednesday will be another mainly cloudy day with more showers arriving late lasting into early Thursday morning. The round of rain will be the leading edge of the record warmth that will be heading our way prior to Santa's arrival!
Any showers will be gone by Christmas morning as a cold front comes through. Therefore we can expect clearing skies and breezy conditions for Christmas Day with temperatures starting off in the 50s for the morning hours then falling back to the mid 40s for the afternoon.
Have a great week and Happy Holidays everyone!
