It’s been quiet around here the past few days and it’s been perfect for last minute shoppers. Unfortunately, the threat of rain will begin tomorrow and extend through midweek. Two disturbances will sweep through giving us two different a chances for rain, (and even snow?)
TONIGHT: Clouds will increase tonight as disturbance #1 moves our way. Lows will be a bit warmer and in the middle 30s. Winds will be light out of the south.
SUNDAY & MONDAY: Showers will be possible during the day Sunday and continue through Sunday night. The showers should come to an end Monday morning. The 2nd half of our Monday (Christmas Eve) is actually looking pretty good at this time.
CHRISTMAS: Christmas Day continues to look very interesting to say the least. Disturbance #2 will develop down in Louisiana during the morning hours and track northeast into our area by the evening. Heavy rain and the threat of strong to severe storms would be issues for us if this scenario plays out. In addition, some wintry weather could sweep in quickly on the back side of the storm for early Wednesday morning if enough cold air can work its way into the system.
It all boils down to the storm track. If the center of the storm moves more to our south then the threat of wintry weather would become higher; however, if the center moves more to the north then the threat of strong storms would be more of a factor. At this point we simply don’t know which track it’s going to take. We’ll keep you updated during the next few days with the latest developments.
