Gusty winds expected by Sunday afternoon

By  | 

(KNOE) - Radar staying dry today thanks to the cold front passing overnight, bringing cooler and drier air into the region. We are still dealing with a decent amount of cloud cover which looks to stay through the overnight and into tomorrow.

Tonight we'll be decently cool in the mid 30s with patchy fog possible late, mainly around the 3am to 7 am time frame. We'll finally start to see the clouds break up by the afternoon, but expect breezy winds through the morning and then downright windy by the afternoon. Temperatures will likely be in the mid 50s for the majority of the viewing area, but with gusty winds nearly 20 to 25 mph during the afternoon as the secondary front pushes through expect it to feel much cooler.

This will lead to pretty chilly, sub-freezing temperatures by Christmas morning. It looks like we'll struggle to get out of the 40s on Christmas as well so it's finally starting to feel a little like winter out there, and that trend will pretty much continue through the week we temperatures will remain decently below average during the day and night.

The next chance for rain comes by Wednesday as another cold front makes a run for the area, but because we're already so cool out it should be relatively weak and we aren't expecting a whole lot of rain as the front passes.

Temperatures will hover around 50 in the afternoon through the rest of the week then, with a mix of clouds and sun just about every day as well.
