KWANZAA – Monday a weak clipper system approaches but doesn’t quite make it to our region. The arctic air that moved in for the Christmas weekend was VERY dry so this new system doesn’t have much to work with in terms of moisture content. A few clouds build this afternoon with a few flurries possible. Folks up towards Nicholas county and points northwest may see enough for a grassy coating, but again, not a big snow maker. Highs today finally warming up to or just above the freezing mark. For those closing out the final night of Hanukkah, we’ll see temps dropping back into the teens under mostly cloudy, but dry, conditions.

Tuesday we continue to warm up as our winds shift and more sunshine is expected! A few passing clouds here and there but overall, a big improvement as we push into the mid and upper 30!

Wednesday warms up even more with sunshine! Highs pushing into the mid and upper 40s! Finally leaving that arctic air behind us.

Thursday will see a few passing clouds but we remain dry. Winds continue to pump in the heat from the southwest as many of us hit the upper 40s and low 50s!

Friday starts off nice with sunshine and warmer temps pushing into the mid and upper 50s! Clouds build in late as do the showers Friday night in to Saturday.

New Years Eve, Saturday our next rain maker moves in and will be with us all day. Showers and downpours likely throughout the day but we remain warm as we inch ever closer to the 60 degree mark with most towards the south and west reaching it. New Years Eve parties should think about moving their events inside since rain will continue for the overnight.

New Years Day, Sunday we’re kicking of 2023 on a soggy note as we continue to see scattered showers moving though. We’ll see a steady decrease in shower activity as the day goes on, but just don’t put that umbrella away just yet. Temps still running well above average in the mid and upper 50s!

In your extended day forecast 2023 may start off on a soggy note with rain but this is winter and we all know cold weather isn’t always too far away. As we get 2023 underway, expect temps to drop back below average as we return to the 30s and 40s. At least for those that don’t like snow, no real indications of any measurable snow…just yet.
