Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone. Here’s hoping you all are having a wonderful holiday season. Our weather is anything but in the holiday spirit as we have very mild temps rolling on. Those mild digits will take us into the start of the weekend, but a big change takes place by the time we hit Sunday. That’s when Old Man Winter wakes back up.

Temps out there today are straight out of the heat meiser’s playbook, but some clouds will be noted. I can’t rule out a sprinkle showing up at some point. The clouds and mild temps will continue though the end of the week as a few showers develop.

The weekend looks very active as a powerful storm rolls into the northern plains, dragging a cold front across Kentucky. Ahead of this storm on Saturday could be super mild and super windy. As the front moves in Saturday night and Sunday, showers and thunderstorms look to increase. Winds will also be very gusty as colder air sweeps in behind the front.

Some wrap around snows will be possible by Monday and Monday night.

The GFS continues to be very consistent with this whole setup…

Check out those maximum wind gusts…

Here’s the Canadian with the setup…

The Euro continues to split the energy, allowing for a big cutoff low across the upper midwest…

Watch how blocky the look is on the Euro as it likely develops several southern stream storms in this configuration…

Have a Merry Christmas and take care.
