We are welcoming the month of December with above-average temperatures.
The next few days we will be under a zonal weather pattern - that's winds out of the west. That brings us warmer, drier air that will have our temperatures soaring between 70-77 degrees for Monday through Wednesday.
Then, we're in store for some dramatic changes. We're tracking a cold front that, right now, is timing to move through our area early Thursday. The timing of this could fluctuate as we get closer.
Here's what all this could mean:
Evening/night showers on Wednesday night (20%). Colder temperatures on Thursday (49 degrees) with rain. The rain could then turn to sleet or snow or a mix as surface temperatures drop into the 20s. Cold air remains on Friday with a high of 35, and then our coldest temperature expected of the season with an overnight low of 17.
Again, that's what the timing is looking like now, but the Big 2 Weather team will continue to evaluate the frontal passage
Highest Temperature: 81 (Nov. 16)
Lowest Temperature: 27 (Nov. 13)
