Winter officially begins warm and very wet this Saturday.  Also, follow along with the maps below for a Futurecast look through Christmas Day.

The rain begins on and off Friday with highs near 60.  Friday won't be a wash-out.

The rain turns heaviest with the area of low pressure riding along the stationary front late Saturday into early Sunday, as you see on the first map below.  Thunderstorms will be possible, severe weather chances appear low at this time, but something always keep an eye on.

This could total up to 2-4" of rainfall, which could cause flooding, especially since our ground is already saturated.  (map 2)

Looking further ahead, it's looking cool/cold and dry for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  The 3rd and 4th maps are Futurecast showing the dry conditions.  So, it does NOT look like a white Christmas at this time. 

Finally, there you can see the many changes on the 7day forecast.  Plus, check out the link at the bottom, which takes you to Historic Christmas Weather.
