The persistent low level cloudiness kept the mercury in the thermometer from rising more than a few degrees today. Low this morning was 37 while the high was only six degrees above that at 43.
Partial clearing, patchy fog and chilly weather tonight as the mercury will dip into the mid to low thirties before the sun rises Sunday.
Sunday will be pleasant, with partly cloudy skies and temps in the low fifties.
The warming trend continues Monday and Tuesday as the highs will top out in the middle fifties Monday and upper fifties Tuesday. Rain is possible both days, as an unsettled pattern slides into the region.
Wednesday (Christmas Eve) will be windy and rainy, with highs in the fifties, then a shot of cold air will arrive late in the day or early in the evening and allow the rain to transition to some wet snow overnight into Christmas morning. No major accumulations are expected, but some flurries may linger a bit Thursday morning.
Dry and cool on Friday.
Winter official begins Sunday evening at 6:03 as the Sun's rays will be perpendicular to the Tropic of Capricorn ending the six month journey south and begin the six month journey north.
