A beautiful afternoon across the valley this afternoon. For Christmas Day it will start off rather chilly in the low 30s with some patch frost possible across some of the region. Come the afternoon, pleasant conditions will encompass the entire region with mild temperatures to follow.
Wednesday, our pattern shifts more out of the southwest and on the heels of that will be our next storm system. Heavy rain will drench the valley once again Thursday with the greatest chance to see a thunderstorm will be early Friday morning. A cold front associated with this system will move through and stall out.
Saturday looks iffy on the rain chances, with the greatest potential for out southern counties along that stalled out boundary.
More energy makes it’s way into the area Sunday into the New Year with more cloudy, overcast and rainy conditions.
Rainfall totals through this extended period are anywhere from 3-4″. This amount of rain could pose the threat for more flooding across the region.
So far this year, we are above average by around 18″.
