Wintry Changes for The Week Ahead

Good Sunday everyone and welcome to another mild December day. Temps will continue to run on the mild side as our weather pattern slowly turns toward winter for the upcoming week.

In addition to today’s mild temps, scattered showers will be possible. You can track all the action on regional radar:

The next area of low pressure works right on top of us Monday as it works to the northeast. That will bring rain and gusty winds our way before giving us the chance for a few snow showers or flurries by Tuesday morning. The European Model shows the cold air dipping in behind the low…

After a dry and dull Wednesday, the action quickly picks up again by Thursday. That’s when a powerful system works across the plains states and into the Great Lakes. That drags a big time front through here and delivers us a massive temp drop. Check out the impressive look on the European Model…

Rain and thunder early Thursday should quickly transition over to a period of snow behind the front. Northwesterly winds will then kick in and should be able to deliver us widespread snow showers and squalls on Friday. Temps by Friday should stay in the 20s with gusty winds making it feel closer to 10 degrees.

The pattern then keeps dropping cold shots and possible light snow makers our way through the weekend…

We will have to take those systems one at a time to see if they can put down some snow around here. Check out the Christmas Morning map. Notice the Arctic air across the Great Lakes and the warm air across Texas with low pressure developing in southeastern Colorado. Every single model has a similar look during that time. That’s very interesting.

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
