Mostly sunny skies today will give way to rainy and cool weather for Christmas.
Santa will definitely be needing Rudolf’s nose to make it safely to everyone’s house this Christmas. But the rain and snow will stay away until early morning on Christmas, so fear not…he’ll still be able to drop off any presents he may have for you. And for those of us acting as Santa, today is going to be very nice for the last minute Christmas shopping. Mostly sunny skies with increasing clouds will be great for the last second dash to the malls. Those clouds will start as wispy little things high overhead, but will progressively thicken and will eventually produce rain and snow showers for Christmas Day. Snow levels will start around 1500 feet, but will rise to 2000 feet by the time the system moves through.
Showers linger into Wednesday as the Christmas storm drags its feet departing. Thursday looks much nicer as high pressure will build in, allowing for more sunny skies to end the week.
