What We’re Tracking:

  • Quiet and cool night
  • Chilly air Saturday
  • Colder nights ahead

Temperatures will continue to fall this evening as partly cloudy skies hold on for just a little bit longer. With a high pressure system moving in we’re expecting much cooler air and breezy conditions early Saturday morning. Temperatures around sunrise will hold in the upper 20s but wind chill values will take us down into the upper teens.

By Saturday afternoon enough sunshine will help warm us into the middle 30s but the wind will continue to be a problem. Saturday is shaping up to be one of the coolest days, for the next 6 to 7 days, with wind chill values keeping us in the lower to middle 20s. Gusts of up to 25 mph will be possible. The second half of the weekend will consist of calmer winds, more sunshine, and a slight bump in temperatures with the lower 40s.

Early next week we’ll hold on to those 40s for Monday with dry conditions and plenty of sunshine. A gradual warm-up looks to take place by midweek as afternoon highs start to climb into the lower to middle 50s. Upper 70s appear to be out of the question this time around though, so we’ll take what we can get.

An early look at the holiday forecast: The chance of a white Christmas this year is about slim to none. As you can imagine, this December we have seen many records being broken with our temperatures so it’s easy to assume snow is off the table. There are indications another cold front will move through before Christmas Eve but no activity looks to come along with it. Temperatures may be around 40° or so. Depending on the timing, we could warm back up just in time for Christmas day with sunshine and afternoon highs in the 50s!
