Temperature Records May Fall Again
It will be another day where high temperature records could fall again though there is a bit of a back door complication. Yesterday was an easy day to set high temperature records but we have a bit of a back door front that is very weak.
However it will be enough to turn the wind from the west to the east today and that could hold temperatures back. Also there will be more clouds around today so this could hold things back. Inland it may be a different story where the east wind won’t have much impact. Those areas could see temperatures reaching well into the 60s.
Sunday night we will probably see some fog and drizzle gradually spread southward and inland with the chance for shower but on Monday we will have a cold front approaching and more showers will develop as we go through the day and lasting into the first part of Monday night. There could be some heavier downpours and perhaps even a rare December thunderstorm could occur. Total forecast rain amounts are in the one half to three quarters of an inch range before showers moving out Monday night.
We will dry out out on Tuesday with some sunshine returning with highs in the 50s. As the week goes on no issues into Thursday until another cold front approaches. This will set us up for cold weather for next weekend. We may finally see temperatures close to normal at that point. The cold weather could last through next weekend and into the start of Christmas week. Then it looks like more of the same with another warmup into another cold front coming along around Wednesday. There are still no signs of any important longer term weather pattern changes. This December remains on track to be one of the warmest if not the warmest December on record.
