CHRISTMAS DAY: Expect a mix of sun and clouds as temperatures climb from near 50° early to the upper 60s and lower 70s by afternoon. Clouds will continue to thicken into Wednesday night as lows fall to the lower to middle 50s.
THURSDAY: Post-Christmas blues will be accompanied by clouds thickening through the day. Temperatures will continue to run above average – from the 50s early to near 70° by the afternoon hours.
EXTENDED FORECAST: A weak disturbance will sneak into the area by the latter half of Friday. This will bring rain chance up a tick along with a surge of Gulf moisture. Highs Friday will still top out in the upper 60s. Another system will approach the region from the west by late Saturday into Sunday – this could bring a round of showers and storms. Timing and impact differences are still something we are honing in on – but behind that system, temperatures will take a dive into the last few days of 2019.
