The week ahead: Warm start, chilly finish as we barrel toward Christmas

/ December 15, 2019 at 10:15 PM

The last work week before Christmas will start out feeling a little more spring-like, with highs topping out in the low 70s Monday and Tuesday before a cold front swings through and sends temperatures a little below normal for Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll see a little warmup as we head into the weekend.

The best chance of rain so far this week will come on Tuesday, primarily from noon into the overnight, as showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms ahead of the aforementioned cold front come through. We’ll then want to watch the weekend for the potential for another coastal storm to get started. There’s a fair bit of uncertainty there still, so don’t change any plans just yet, but keep an eye on the forecast as rain chances become more clear.
