Cooler But Not Cold!

These days record warmth is so common, NOT breaking a record may garner more attention. The next few days will “cooler”. But while temperatures will stay below record territory, they will still remain well above average for this time of year. Wednesday looks calm with plenty of sunshine. Clouds and rain return Thursday with the steadiest and heaviest arriving in the afternoon and evening.  A real taste of winter cold arrives this weekend with some towns struggling in the 30s for high temperatures. We may even see a few snowflakes flying through the air this weekend. But the long range models suggest the cool-down is short-lived with 50s & 60s approaching Christmas. Our chances of a white Christmas are looking bleak!

Tonight: Gradual clearing with the wind slowly diminishing too. Low: 35-40.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Still mild for early-mid December! High: 45-50.
