Rain will continue to fall tonight, but don’t get worried about icy patches developing. Temperatures will not only be staying above freezing through the late night, but they’ll actually be rising with warmer air flowing in. So, by daybreak, look for temps to be around the low 40s.
Tuesday’s best rain chances come in the morning with only slight rain chances in the afternoon. High temperatures will zoom all the way to near 50° with southwesterly winds blowing in between 5 and 10 mph.
Another round of rain rolls in Tuesday night and continues through the day on Christmas Eve. High temps, again, will be well above average – in the upper 40s. So, during the daytime, we’ll have only rain to worry about. By nighttime, colder air will come in and the rain will changeover to snow, likely as we get into late evening. Our latest timings place this changeover time to be around 9 PM.
While snow will fall into Christmas morning, it will have difficulty accumulating, due to our warm Tuesday/Wednesday forecast. Our current expectation is that these snow amounts will range from just a dusting to up to around 1″. This forecast may change as Christmas moves closer and we get a clearer picture of the ultimate storm track. We’ll keep you posted with the latest updates here on wane.com and on NewsChannel 15.
