Discussion              

Rain will become heavy at times today and continue into early Friday morning and there can be a thunderstorm or two mixed into this soaking rain event.  It’ll turn milder today and winds will become increasingly strong pushing in the milder air. A powerful Arctic front will arrive here by mid-to-late morning on Friday and temperatures will drop dramatically on its back side during the mid-day and early afternoon hours – perhaps by more than 30 degrees in a short period of time. Winds will accompany the frontal passage on Friday and can gust up to 50 mph shifting to a W-NW direction following the passage of the frontal system. A quick freeze-up is possible on Friday of any wet spots that remain on 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 face-slapping Arctic cold.
