WINTER RETURNS WITH DECEMBER: As I study the forecasting models, it appears winter will make a strong case by the middle of the week. A powerful cold front will turn rain into snow on Wednesday night and Thursday will be a raw, cold day with snow and rain mixture. It is still a few days away, so we will continue to watch this developing situation. As always, I'll keep you informed on the latest.
COLD AND RAINY MONDAY: Rain continues today early and it'll be chilly with highs struggling to reach 50°. Skies clear out tonight with a low in the lower 30's. Tuesday will be a sunny, warm day with highs around 57° and then the change comes with rain developing Tuesday night continuing on Wednesday. We won't see highs anywhere near 50° again until at least the weekend.
