Suchan Says: Active Weather Pattern

One thing is for sure over the next seven days, there is plenty of storminess to roll through and hopes for an extended stretch of sunny, dry weather will not be found in our region.

Tuesday offers up a nice afternoon once we get through a bit of patchy morning fog.  If out early driving in patches of dense fog, careful on bridges and overpasses as temperatures are likely to start near or below freezing which could create a couple of icy spots.

By late morning to early afternoon, bright sunshine with scattered fair weather clouds dominate the rest of the day with a nice warm up into the 50s.  I expect a high around 54.


Tuesday Morning: Patchy fog could start the day


Tuesday Afternoon: Mostly to partly sunny and milder

Next system moves in late Tuesday night with developing showers and the possibility of a few rumbles of thunder.  I expect temperatures to hold in the 40s through the night, so roads are only wet and not icy.  Patchy rain and thunder start the day Wednesday before gradual drying kicks in by late afternoon.  Highs again in the lower to mid 50s.


Wednesday Morning: Patchy rain with some thunder possible


Wednesday Afternoon: Lingering sprinkles or showers then dry by sunset

Thursday will start with a fast moving upper air disturbance zipping in.  Temperatures will be just cold enough for a few snow showers, sleet or rain in the northern half of the area.  I wouldn’t rule out a couple of early morning slick spots in this scenario.

By the afternoon, partly to mostly cloudy skies with dry conditions and temperatures in the mid 40s.

And a special treat this year for Christmas!  A full moon will occur at 5:11am CST!  Last time that happened was 1977 and the next chance for this to occur is 2034.  Skies will be partly cloudy especially late which should allow for some viewing of this full moon on Christmas morning!


I’ll be on vacation the rest of the week spending Christmas with family.  Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
