Happy Winter Solstice! The Winter Solstice occurred at 5:03pm today, but it sure doesn't feel like winter. Highs topped out in the mid to upper 30s, and we've seen areas of light rain and fog on and off throughout the day.
Areas of light rain and fog will continue this evening, possibly mixing with a little snow or sleet overnight. Temperatures will only drop a couple degrees with lows in the mid 30s.
The storm system that's bringing tonight's light rain/mix will continue to affect us for the next couple of days. Expect periods of light rain or a rain/snow mix to continue on and off during the day Monday. Temperatures will once again be in the upper 30s.
Looking Ahead... It now looks like the colder air behind this system will move in a bit later than expected. The chance of a wintry mix will continue on Tuesday as temperatures remain in the mid to upper 30s for highs.
The colder air then looks to move in Tuesday night and Wednesday, bringing a chance of snow. At this point, it's too early to start hashing out snowfall totals, so stay tuned!
Christmas Day is still looking dry, but a bit milder than previously expected. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Another shot of cold air moves in beginning Friday and lasting through next weekend with chances of snow.
Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
