A nice weekend is in progress for holiday shopping, travel, and catching up on outdoor chores under bright sunny skies.
Winter arrives at 11:29 p.m. Sunday night, but it’s almost as if this marks a transition from winter back to fall-like weather.
Patchy fog will form overnight as long as the ground is moist with a melting snowpack. Early morning clouds will linger in some areas the next few days until mixing out mid-morning.
High pressure will settle in over the Ohio Valley. Mornings will be chilly in the upper 20s, with mild afternoon highs in the mid- to upper 40s. Ridging means fair weather for many days to come!
A large storm will drift across the Southeastern states and eventually off the Georgia coast early in the week, but moisture will stay well to our south. The only other long-range impacts will be along the West Coast with a strong Pacific system.
The weather in the Midwest and Northeast will remain rather mild and tranquil through Christmas. A weak system passing to the north of the Lakes will introduce more cloud cover later in the week and possibly some sprinkles. A better chance of rain arrives next weekend.
