Beautiful Weekend!

A beautiful weekend with plenty of sunshine to enjoy! I know today was perfect weather for the final shopping Saturday before Christmas (And the roads were extremely busy).

Similar weather will be around for Sunday's daycast. Highs will top out in the mid-50's with lows near 30, but big changes will come again.

On Tuesday I'll expect warmer temperatures to shift in association to a warm front. A good surge of isentropic lift along the warm front Wednesday morning will allow showers to form across the region. Then a cold front will swing through the Pine Belt late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. The instability looks minimal at this point, but we will be paying close attention to the severe nature of this frontal movement Wednesday night. Models are currently suggesting the upper level jet will weaken as it approaches the area late Wednesday, which is one good sign for avoiding a severe event.

Early Christmas forecast shows mostly clear conditions with a cool high near 50.
