MERRY CHRISTMAS! This will be a very brief Christmas morning update. We’ll updated the forecast today and the rest of Christmas week. We have a significant storm system on the way, which could drop 4 to 6” of rain Thursday through the weekend. We will look into this storm in more detail on your Wednesday morning weather video
TODAY: There will be some high clouds, but we’ll see a good but of sunshine. Call it, partly cloudy. After a morning low in the mid 30’s, afternoon High 63. (Normal high 58). Partly cloudy tonight. Lo 42.
THE NEXT FEW DAYS: Much of Wednesday will be dry and very mild. There will be some sun, but clouds will increase late day and rain is a good bet by Wednesday night. Rain and perhaps some thunderstorms are likely Thursday and Friday. A very good chance of lingering showers will drench the area this weekend, too.
SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM APPROACHING: Briefly, this approaching storm will be a pretty big deal. Rain is likely for several days, especially Thursday through Sunday. Very heavy rainfall totals are expected. Seven day totals of 4 to 6” are possible.
We’ll have to monitor the potential for severe weather l in the Thursday/Friday timeframe. Right now, it looks like the best chance of severe weather will be closer to the Gulf coast. I’ll get into more detail on this potential on your weather video tomorrow morning.
No video this morning. But, there WILL be a video online tomorrow morning at 4:45AM. I hope you have a great holiday. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!
