Unseasonably warm through Christmas before it turns cooler late week


Possible rain showers Friday with a rain/snow chance this weekend

Just one week ago, we had just experienced the coldest air of the season and first significant snow. Most traces of that snow are long gone, but the melting has increased our surface moisture and that has contributed to the development of late night and early morning fog.

A strong high pressure air has been building over the region for a few days. This pattern will continue to protect the region from storm systems and disturbances. Expect quiet weather through much of the week ahead.

Sunshine may be a bit limited at times, but partly cloudy conditions should be the rule with a steady southerly breeze. Temperatures will likely be about 20 degrees above normal today through Christmas Day.

Greater Topeka Monday
Highs: 59-63
Wind: S 10-20

Clouds likely increase Tuesday with slightly stronger wind. There could be a few sprinkles Christmas Eve into early Christmas, but that should be about the extent of precipitation until we get closer to the weekend.

Temperatures will lower gradually late week. Highs could still be in the 50s Thursday before only reaching the 40s Friday. A system likely arrives this weekend for a shower chance late Friday and periods of light rain on Saturday. Patchy mix could hit spots early Sunday with near normal temperatures.
