Good Sunday, folks. Another system is working across the region today, bringing light rain and a bit of light snow with it. This is just another in a long line of systems ready to impact our weather through Christmas week and into early January, at least.

Temps ahead of today’s system will spike into the low 40s, then drop through the 30s as the light rain begins. A period of light snow may develop, especially toward the back end. The European Model shows this well…

The GFS is also seeing this…

Here’s regional radar to track the rain and light snow…

Christmas Eve looks really nice with a mix of sun and clouds during the day and thickening clouds after dark. Temps will be in the upper 20s and low 30s as Santa flies in from the North Pole.

Another weak system then moves in for Christmas Day. This is even lighter than the one we have today, but the chance is there for a touch of light rain and light snow early on. The best chance for some ChristmasĀ  flakes will be in the west and north…

A much stronger system will then work into the plains states and usher in much milder air. That comes with another wet price to be paid as heavy rain returns by Thursday and into early Friday…

That may be enough rain to cause additional high water issues.

Cold air presses in behind that as additional storm systems target our region. Check out the action trying to hook up with that cold air seeping in from the northwest…

Each of those systems will be handled on a case by case basis, obviously. I can tell you one thing, we better hope those produce winter weather around here instead of rain and I don’t mean just because we like snow. Our rivers are full and won’t be able to handle any other big rain events.

I will update things later today. Have a good one and take care.
