What a great Saturday this is going to be! Skies will feature bright sunshine once again and afternoon highs should climb back into the mid 50s. We’ll enjoy a light southerly breeze for a change. Clouds will increase tonight as the next disturbance moves our way and showers will be possible during the day Sunday. The threat of rain will continue Sunday night but the showers should come to an end Monday morning. The 2nd half of our Christmas Eve is actually looking pretty good at this time.
Christmas Day continues to look very interesting to say the least. Our computer models still suggest that a strong area of low pressure 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.
