Starting first with a look at the end of December, the latest from the CPC shows above average temperatures and below average precipitation. This does not rule out the chance for a white Christmas, but as usual, chances are pretty low. As for today, we will be mild with high's around 50 degrees and sunny skies. This afternoon, clouds will increase as a chance of showers is possible overnight.
Looking below, a system continues to develop in the Gulf bringing moisture the next couple of days. This system will arrive by mid morning Friday and carry through to Saturday afternoon. We will briefly dry out Sunday before round two arrives from another system to the west early next week.
Checking out the setup, scattered showers will arrive overnight tonight and into Friday. Expect showers through much of Friday and Saturday before moving out Saturday afternoon. We will then get a brief pause from the rain Sunday before another system arrives Sunday night into Monday. This next system will bring showers Monday and Tuesday and cooler temps on Wednesday.
The biggest take away from todays forecast is: Don't forget those umbrellas! We will be wet the next couple of days so stay dry and drive safe on wet roads. Have a good one!
