On Monday there is a small chance for some rain and maybe a few snowflakes could mix in. Temperatures will be hovering above and around the freezing mark so some snowflakes are possible. However, I think the models may be overdoing it just a little.

Moving on, on Thursday the jet stream will take a dip and temperatures will as well. Above is a look at the temperature anomalies showing will be colder than normal Thursday evening.

Let’s take a look at temperatures, highs on Wednesday could make it into the 50s. However, temperatures will quickly drop Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Thursday’s high temperatures looks like it will occur very early in the morning. Throughout Thursday we could see temperatures in the 20s. Thursday night into Friday morning temperatures will be in the single digits.

Wind chill values could be 15 to almost 20 degrees below zero Friday morning and will stay in the single digits pretty much all day on Christmas Day (Friday). Highs on Friday may only reach 18 or 19 degrees.

Alright, above is a look at the GFS model, we will have rain move into the area Wednesday. Rain should start Wednesday afternoon and continue into Wednesday evening. It should stay all rain Wednesday because again, remember, highs could be in the 50s Wednesday. Now, overnight Wednesday into Thursday any leftover precipitation could become snow as that very cold air moves into the area. By Thursday afternoon precipitation should be out of the area. Now the Euro model and the GFS model are not really aligned with each other as far as precipitation goes. So, right now we will stick with just the GFS. Won’t talk snow accumulations since it’s still kind of early. This forecast could change.
