Boxing Day Dry Rain Friday Uncertainty Sunday Monday
The day after Christmas is the day of the Christmas hangover from presents, food, more presents, more food. Today being recovery day we all have that morning headache which sort of matches what weather models are doing this weekend and beyond. However let us get there first with sunshine and some clouds today. We have a northwest flow this morning which is evident on the satellite loop. That has produced some cloud cover this morning. Temperatures today should respond to some partial sunshine that develops. Highs should reach into the lower 40s in most places. Radars aren’t doing very much at the moment but they will become busy Thursday night and Friday as the next storm system heads our way.
We should see clear skies tonight with most lows in the mid 20s in colder inland areas to low and mid 30s along the coast. Thursday brings arriving clouds as low pressure heads to the Great Lakes. We are looking at a major snowstorm for the Plains with foot plus snows possible in some areas. Here it is going to be rain and warmer temperatures. Thursday we will be in the 40s and hold there overnight as rain arrives. Friday looks cloudy with rain and temperatures in the 50s. We could see another inch or so of rain out of this before the system pulls away Friday night.
We will dry out on Saturday and colder air begins to arrive. Then the question becomes whether a wave develops on the southern flank of the front coming through and heads our way later Sunday into Monday. Models have been swinging wildly from run to run as the big changes in the upper atmosphere are creating even more volatility than usual.
Here is a bullish view for snow mix and rain from the parallel GFS from overnight. This would argue for accumulating snow of perhaps several inches but this could all wind up getting suppressed. There is not a whole lot of confidence here. There is more energy behind this system which will have impact. We will evaluate this later today when calmer and healthier heads prevail.
