FRIDAY: Patchy areas of fog possible to start off the day. Even once the fog lifts, clouds will stick around through much of the day, though some peeks of sunshine are possible through the afternoon hours. Highs will be warm and muggy, amid a stiff south breeze; in the upper 70s. A few showers possible near and south of I-20; better rain chances the farther north you are. Rain chances will increase for all overnight as a strong cold front pushes through the region.
SATURDAY: Showers, a few storms will be likely to start off the day – most of the rain will end by mid—day Saturday. Expect temperatures to start off in the 60s, falling into the 50s through the morning hours as the front pushes east. Clouds will hang around the balance of the day. Lows will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s.
CHRISTMAS EVE: Morning clouds will give way to periods of sun through the afternoon; we'll be dry and cooler than the previous week, with highs managing the middle 50s. Skies will generally clear through Sunday night as lows drop into the 20s.
NEXT WEEK: Christmas Day will feature quiet weather – expect mostly to partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s; we’ll stay quiet and dry into Tuesday before our next weather maker begins to make its presence known by late Wednesday, bringing an increased chance of rain amid seasonable temperatures in the 50s to near 60°. Next shot of chilly air due into the region by Friday or Saturday.
