Warm. Then Winter returns.
Yes today is the peak of the warm pattern. Today will be very warm with highs to 60 or higher. Records will be set today in numerous places. If not I will be shocked. Cold front moves through tonight leaving us with a mild day on Friday but turning colder.
Then winter "returns". I put that in quotes because too many of us see snow = winter. Without snow, no winter. This is not true. We average 36" of snow a year (give or take depending on elevation.) for a reason. We also get ice and cold rains in winter too. Saturday will be a cold rainy day. Highs will be in upper 30s to lower 40's.
Sunday looks nice and typically chilly. Monday through Thursday also look about the same. (Wed is interesting as a storm looks to be to our north, and another to our south. Right now I think they stay separate, leaving us in the middle with nothing).
Then eyes turn to Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the Day after Christmas. There is a signal for some kind of storminess. This would fit. A storm this Saturday and another about 7 days away. We will have to keep an eye on that. Until then travel for school, work, shopping, gatherings, parties, services, etc. will be of no issue.
Thursday (today): Partly sunny. Warm. 61.
Friday: Partly sunny. Clouds thicken late. Rain arrives late overnight. Cooler. 49.
Saturday: Periods or rain and drizzle. Chilly. 40.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. 38.
Monday: Mostly sunny. 40.
Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny. 42.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny. 38.

Pastor Terry. He received his bachelors degree in Meteorology from the State University of New York at Oneonta, in 1994. The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
