We are picking up right where we left off yesterday with gray skies. Today will be cloudy but mainly dry with a highs in the middle 30s. Tonight, the flow off the ocean becomes a bit stronger. This will induce scattered drizzle across the region, which will likely be freezing with surface temperatures a few degrees below freezing. A thin glaze of ice is possible, which would make travel quite dangerous for tomorrow morning’s commute. Temperatures will warm above freezing during the morning tomorrow, eventually changing the drizzle and shower activity over to plain rain.
The bulk of the storm arrives Wednesday (Christmas Eve). That’s when heavy rain and gusty winds will move through the region. Expect tropical downpours for Santa’s arrival along with gusty winds and balmy temperatures. By the time the storm ends early Christmas morning 1-2″ of rain will have fallen. Sustained winds of 15-25 mph with higher gusts are anticipated Wednesday evening into Wednesday night. Temperatures late Wednesday will soar to near 60 degrees! Santa will be making the necessary arrangements, since there will be no snow at all!
The rain will end early Christmas morning as clouds break to some sunshine. It will still be windy and mild, with temperatures well into the 50s! It will not feel nor look like Christmas at all! Temperatures remain rather mild as we head into the last weekend of 2014.
