SUNDAY UPDATE:  Active Weather Week Ahead

Good morning!  After a simply beautiful Saturday, we have a pretty decent Sunday ahead of us.  But, get ready.   The week ahead will be quite active.  It will be rather wet at times.  Monday and Tuesday will be warm.  The rest of the week will be chilly, grey, with a risk of showers persisting.  This week’s Cold Front will linger near the coast.  So, we will only ‘sample’ that  very cold airmass which will affect so much of our nation this week.

TODAY:  Mostly cloudy.  Can’t rule out an isolated shower today or tonight.  Our high of 63 is just about normal.  For the hunters: East wind at 5 to 10 mph.  Mild overnight…low 57.  (Normal low 39).

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Monday’s high will be well into the 70’s, with a small rain chance daytime.  The better rain chance comes in later Monday night and Tuesday.  A few thunderstorms are possible.  Wednesday through Friday will be quite a bit  colder with the risk of showers persisting.  I do not see any freezing nights this week.

Rainfall amounts could be rather generous in spots this week, deepening on where you live.   Some of us could see an inch or more through Thursday.

LOOKING AHEAD:  These long range model trends don’t always work out, but the GFS has shown a lot of consistency in bringing in a shot of very cold air sometime around December 18-20th.   How cold…and how long? We will continue to monitor.

We had a nice time in Millbrook yesterday.  It was a great day for a Christmas parade, and it was nice to see so many of you.

I will have a video update for you first thing tomorrow morning at 4:45AM.   Have a nice Sunday!
