oday would be one of those days to stay home, relax, read a good book by the fire. It will be a damp, chilly, raw day outside. Tomorrow looks nice and warm to start. Maybe some wintry precipitation Thur and Sun? Details below.
I pray you had a Merry Christmas Day and are still enjoying the wonder of this Season. We certainly did. Remembering how our Savior and LORD was born, grew up, gave His life for all sinners, rising again so we can all overcome sin and death through faith in Him as Savior and LORD provided for a wonderful Christmas Day.
And it was a beautiful day too! Lots of sunshine, mild temperatures. A little warmer than I thought, but then again, NO FORECAST anywhere had clouds hanging around until morning. Strong inversion set up trapping moisture all Sat night. Being near 40 at 7am made it easy to reach the mid-40s. But who is complaining? Nice to take a nice long walk of Christmas afternoon
Moving Forward ...
Today’s Discussion Continued:
Cool air trapped in the valleys with cold air damming today (see map), but slow warming continues as temperatures rise to at least the low 40s by Tue 6 am. When the cold front passes early tomorrow morning, the temperatures will jump to near 50, stay there for a while and then slowly slide in the afternoon and evening.
Nice Wednesday before wintry weather returns for the first part of Thursday. Some snow/rain mixture seems likely right now. Don’t see much ice with the coming set up. Which is good.
Nice but cold on Friday and Saturday. Nothing outrageous, just typical winter cold with gusty winds on Fri as Thursday system becomes quite strong NNE of Maine.
Next winter weather maker looks to arrive just in time for New Year’s Day. The models are struggling with this system. It reminds me a lot of the Christmas Eve system. Not strong, and with a strong system behind it, the models are losing the weaker guy. Again, think of Christmas Eve with light amounts of precipitation and you’ll get the idea I am thinking about for New Year’s Day: Snow/ice/rain are all possible.
Winter is here. Enjoy the warmth Tuesday.
