This week will feel much colder, although we are much closer to the average temperature for late December. Nighttime temps will dip into the 20s with afternoon highs in the 40s. Most of this week also remains dry leading up to Christmas Eve.

Christmas weekend will start off a little unsettled. Clouds increase with flurries for some Friday morning. We stay cloudy Christmas Eve with rain showers arriving Friday night (after most Christmas Eve services). The showers exit early Saturday morning, allowing clearing skies and a steady northwest breeze for Christmas Day. Sunday remains dry and seasonable.

Next week may start off with some rain and snow showers, but overall, no big storms are in the forecast during the holidays.
