WHAT TO EXPECT

If you plan on heading out the the Christmas Parades this evening you’ll want to take the jacket or coat as temperatures are cooling and coupled with a strong breeze at times. We’re heading into the lower 50s overnight and will slowly begin to warm heading into Saturday morning as clouds and rain chances return. A few rumbles of thunder and lightning are possible around day-break before we slowly dry out for the afternoon.

Clouds continue to stick around for Saturday afternoon with a stray shower possible as winds will slowly relax the later in the day we go. Highs will be held in check with the limited sunshine as temperatures top out in the middle to upper 50s. Cooler weather is on the way for Sunday, although we stay on the drier side as rain chances remain on the lower side.

LOOKING AHEAD

While rain chances are lower to Sunday and to start Monday we are looking at the next system arriving Monday night into Tuesday bringing us the next chance of rain. Some of the rain could be heavy at times and will be moving through in waves. To start next week you’ll want to keep the rain gear close by as we keep rain chances in the mix right on through Wednesday.

Some slightly drier air looks possible to end next week as temperatures remain fairly steady in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Here’s the latest look of your First Alert 8-Day Planner.
