Discussion              

Rain will become heavy at times later today and continue into early Friday morning and there can be a thunderstorm or two mixed into this soaking rain event.  A wintry mix is possible for a little while longer early today in some of the normally colder far northern and western suburbs. It’ll turn milder later in the day and winds will become increasingly strong pushing in the milder air. A powerful Arctic front will arrive here on Friday morning and temperatures will drop dramatically on its back side – perhaps by more than 30 degrees in a short period of time. Winds will remain strong behind the front shifting to a W-NW direction and gusting to 50 mph or so. A quick freeze-up is possible on Friday of any wet spots that remain on the roadways from the prior rainfall. A burst of snow is likely immediately behind the frontal passage which can quickly generate a coating to an inch or two – adding to the potential difficulty in overall travel conditions. Temperatures may bottom out in the single digits by early Saturday morning (Christmas Eve) and the frigid weather will continue through Christmas Day (Sunday). Winds will stay quite strong through much of the weekend adding to the suffering of the upcoming “face-slapping” Arctic cold.
