Warm-up expected for the end of the week before new cold front

Mild for December and still in search of snowfall!

This will make for some very cold temperatures this weekend, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. With strong southwesterly winds on Tuesday, a warm-up to nearly 50 degrees is possible, and the sun may peek out behind some clouds. Highs could be to or above 70 ahead of the well advertised Arctic front that arrives Thursday evening.

On and off showers and cloudy skies look to remain in place over the weekend leading up to Christmas, and the cold front causing them looks to stay in place and provide that possibility on Christmas day.

Fog will limit visibility Tuesday morning.

A weak Pacific Front will move through the area Tuesday afternoon, allowing for a second chance of thunderstorms.

Holiday snow has been sparse in recent years.




There is a high likelihood that we see snow Thursday with the first bout of cold weather.

To start next week we look to hold on to the wind and rain, however there will always be drier interludes in between.

And don't forget, if you have a bet on a white Christmas Day, you only need a single flake to fall.

But it's too soon to say whether any precipitation that falls Thursday night and Friday will be snow or rain.

So, if you're dreaming of a white Christmas like Bing Crosby was, you'll have to keep dreaming, and hopefully be able to at least accept the more likely reality of a soggy Christmas (which certainly does NOT have as good of a ring to it).
