The snow outlook before Christmas doesn’t look promising for those hoping for a white Christmas.
Today’s highs will be cooler with the numbers mainly in the 20s.
South winds will be steady overnight with lows mainly in the teens.
Tomorrow will be in the 30s as snow passes mainly to our north. Winds will be stronger from the northwest at 20-35 mph.
The 7-day forecast is certainly warmer by Thursday with highs in the mid 40s. The 20% chance of rain or snow showers on Friday doesn’t look like much at this point, but we’ll keep updating the forecast. Highs on Christmas may be close to 40.
