SPOTTY RAIN SHOWERS TO LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS
A cold front passes Monday evening delivering cooler air and rain showers. The burst of rain early in the day was fairly light but more showers will develop Monday night.
Colder air filter in as wind shift to the northwest around 12 a.m. Rain showers may mix with freezing drizzle and snow showers well before sunrise Tuesday. Some slick spots may emerge early Tuesday.
NO COLD BLASTS COMING
December is off and running rather quietly. The early to mid-week chill will ease throughout the week and a strong warm up will begin as we reach the weekend. The frigid weather pattern that dominated November (6th coldest November on record) has eased for now.
The wavy, progressive flow - from west to east across the nation, places milder air over the central U..S for the weekend and early next week. The frigid air remains bottled up and not set to make an all out assault on the nation just yet.
Long Range outlooks hint at some jabs of cold out 14 days but nothing sustained. It is only a matter of time that the pattern turns more active and the cold becomes more sustained.
