Remaining dry and chilly as high pressure slides across the region


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

High pressure will continue to build across the region this weekend with mainly dry and seasonably cold weather expected. A weak and moisture starved disturbance will cross the region late tonight into Sunday with an increase in clouds expected and perhaps some spotty snow showers in far eastern areas, before attention then turns to a much larger storm system that will approach into Christmas Eve.

Low pressure will track to the west and rapidly strengthen into the Great Lakes late Monday through Tuesday, sending an occluded front through the region on Christmas Eve with warmer temperatures and rain expected. Strong and gusty winds could also become an issue as the low tracks to our west. Colder weather will filter back into the region behind the system for Christmas Day with a few lingering snow showers.
