WEATHER BLOG: Starting To Look A Lot Like… Springtime?
Through the first 19 days of this month, the temperature departure here is -0.7 degrees. Temps each of the next four days, including Friday, will be above normal. The most impressive departures on the plus side will occur Saturday and especially Sunday. Like we have been saying all week long, we do expect a lot of record highs to be tied or broken both Saturday and Sunday.
We expect a downward trend in temps during the first part of next week. That process will actually take place in steps. Monday will be cooler than Sunday, with readings not moving much from the early morning lows. Tuesday looks much colder with a very noticeable step down in temps with highs only reaching the mid/upper 30s. This will set the scene for a more winter-like forecast (temperature-wise) just in time for Christmas Day on Wednesday.
