Good Monday morning! Welcome to the final hours of astronomical Autumn. Winter begins this evening at 11:49pm. Then, slowly but surely the days will start getting longer! Well pick up 4 seconds by Wednesday. Woo!
We will not be dealing with wintry weather anytime soon. Unless you have paid zero attention to the weather lately, you know that this week is going to be very warm for this time of the year. As the warm air surges north, Round #1 of rain will be here today.
The HRRR model shows this rain pushing through for the midday and early afternoon today and then a break in the action this evening.
But another round of steady rain is likely to return early tomorrow morning before we get another respite tomorrow afternoon and night.
Rain totals through tomorrow morning will average 0.50-0.60″.
Highs today and tomorrow will be well above average. Today will actually be the coolest day of the week!
The break from the rain will come to an end this day with another surge of moisture (and even higher temperatures). Look for scattered showers (not a wash out).
The last of the rain (for a couple of days) will depart by lunch time as a cold front pushes east. This will set the stage for a pleasant Christmas Eve evening.
Look at how many places will have record warmth on Christmas Eve. Amazing.
A nice day!! We’ll finally have some sunshine and while it will not be 60….50 is still way above average.
Rain will return Saturday and perhaps Sunday, but that beats snow for holiday travelers.
There are signs that the pattern will change enough late this month and into January that cold air will be able to win more battles. Not sold that it is a “COLD” pattern….just a pattern that will allow more “typical” weather for the time of the year.
WEATHER FOR WEATHER GEEKS:
Have been getting a lot of questions about any signs of a pattern change for January so we’ll take a good look at the climate models for January and even February to see if Winter is ever going to show up. Tonight’s video will be online by 8:00. See you then!
