A wet Christmas week

Good Sunday to one and all. Christmas week is upon us and the weather is looking anything but white. We have a mild and very wet pattern taking shape across our region, and that could end up causing some issues.

Before we get into all that mess, we have one more nice day to go through. Highs today will be back into the mid and upper 40s for most areas with some high clouds on the increase. Those clouds then thicken up later tonight with rain arriving on Monday. Check out the wall of showers working in on the NAM Simulated Radar:

That initial surge of rain pushes through here by Monday night, but another round of rain should be on tap for Tuesday:

Mild winds from the southwest could push temps into the low 60s from Tuesday through early Thursday. More in the way of locally heavy rains will be with us during this time.

The rain may take a bit of a break for Christmas Eve and Day, but it’s not going away. A healthy temperature gradient likely sets up across the Ohio Valley over the weekend. That’s usually a signal for a lot of rain to fall, and that appears to be what’s ahead of us.

That’s especially true with a powerful storm system working right on top of the region:

As I’ve been saying in recent posts, that’s definitely something for us to keep a very close eye on.

It’s all the more reason to enjoy your Sunday. Take care.
