MILD end to FALL, then a quick shot of WINTER WETNESS...and a DRY Holiday weekend!
The rain is gone, but the FOG and low clouds will linger on this morning. Light winds will make it hard to get rid of the low cloud deck for many areas however, best chance to see more sun (and highs near 70) will be west/sw of FTW. The rest of us may see a few breaks PM and highs in the low 60s.
Thursday (as winter begins) will still very very warm all areas in the 70s...and a few spots touching 80 with a nice south breeze and partly sunny skies after patchy morning fog.
Friday gets very tricky for the first FULL day of Winter. A STRONG cold front moves through early in the morning, so highs will be in the upper 40s (warmer 60s south) before falling closer to 40 during the day! At the same time an upper level storm in the colder air will produce widespread rain (70% ...even higher east/south). That rain may last through the evening hours as well...
Skies should clear early Saturday or even before sunrise, so it looks DRY and cool. Highs in the 50s after starting out in the 30s.
A modified ARCTIC FRONT blows through at night with gusty winds and COLD temps for Sunday. Barely into the 40s with mostly cloudy skies however it looks as if it will now be totally DRY for Christmas Eve travel.
Finally Christmas Day will start cold in the 20s, then moderate with some PM clouds into the 40s, and even 50s by Tuesday.
