Winter tries to show up before Christmas

Good Sunday, everyone. After another soaker of a storm system, the rain train is finally beginning to roll out of town. This will be replaced by much better weather to start the week, but Old Man Winter is plotting a return by the end of next week.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Gusty showers will be noted early on, with low clouds tough to scour out this afternoon:

Temps will be a little chillier than the past few days, but still not bad for this time of year.

Skies become partly cloudy Monday and Tuesday with seasonal temps in the 40s for highs. Let’s enjoy the weather through Wednesday because big changes move in for the end of the week.

the end of the week storm continues to look very interesting as it shows up stronger and stronger on the forecast models.

The GFS has a major storm that deepens into a monster low, bringing rain, wind and snow to our region from Thursday through early Saturday…

The new version of the GFS is also showing a monster storm, with a slightly farther east track and has our second system showing up behind it later in the weekend…

The European Model is a bit weaker with the storm, but still has a widespread powerhouse of a storm…

The same model then brings a lighter system across the region late Sunday into early Christmas Eve Day…

At the end of the run, you can see another storm system starting to develop on Christmas morning…

The Canadian Model doesn’t have nearly as big of a storm for Thursday and Friday, but does show the second system over the weekend…

It also shows the Christmas Eve system:

Interesting times ahead and it should make for a lot of fun tracking it all as we roll closer and closer to Christmas.

Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
