Pinpoint Weather: Slightly cooler Wednesday then the mild pattern returns Thursday, rain still expected by Friday

Weather

The region will be dealing with cold nights and mild days again on Wednesday although the highs will only be in the middle 50s. Normal for this time of year is around 50 so we are only a few degrees off tomorrow. That will change on Thursday as the mercury in the thermometer pushes back into the upper 60s and may breach 70 on Saturday. The air is very dry and we should be dealing with a mix of clouds and sunshine over the next couple of days as high pressure stands firm.
Also, there are still several counties under a burn ban and today Carroll county was added to the list.

Thursday will be the transition day as clouds become more prevalent in the sky as moisture levels increase as well as the temps. Highs on Thursday will tip out in the upper 60s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. The region will be in a state of flux Thursday night as a weak cold front pushes through with little to no moisture to work with, followed by warmer air for Friday and Saturday. This is all ahead of a more robust cold front that will drop our temps back to the 40s on Sunday. 

Rain will be spotty Friday and Saturday before a bit of a dry spell on Sunday.  Some models are hinting as a bit of rain Sunday, that has not been consistent with each model update.  Now Monday is where the forecast gets complicated.

Monday shows signs of some decent rain and a wintry mix by one of the models, yet has nothing from another.  Not all models go that far out for a reason, variability and change, so this will be monitored closely to see which model flips or flops on the forecast for next Monday. Until then, enjoy the mild pattern and the dry air.

Of Note:  The Astronomical Winter begins on Tuesday morning at 10:58 am as the direct rays of the sun are over the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere, marking the start of the winter season. The Meteorological Winter began on December 1st.
